Utilizing genomics and phenomics in CIMMYT wheat breeding
Linear selection indices in modern plant breeding
Genetic improvement programs of plants and livestock are aimed at maximizing the rate of increase of some merit function (e.g., economic value of a wheat line) that is expected to have a genetic basis. Typically, candidates ...
Diversity analysis of 80,000 wheat accessions reveals consequences and opportunities of selection footprints
(Nature Publishing Group, 2020)
Increasing genetic gains in wheat through physiological genetics and breeding
In order to meet future wheat demand it is necessary to increase yield potential and develop stress adapted genotypes. To do so, research and breeding is conducted at CIMMYT through the International Wheat Yield Partnership ...
