Genomic prediction using phenotypes from pedigreed lines with no marker data
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2016)
Until now, genomic prediction (GP) in plant breeding has only used information from individuals that have been genotyped. Information from nongenotyped relatives of genotyped individuals can also be used. Single-step GP ...
Initiating maize pre-breeding programs using genomic selection to harness polygenic variation from landrace populations
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: The limited genetic diversity of elite maize germplasms raises concerns about the potential to breed for new challenges. Initiatives have been formed over the years to identify and utilize useful diversity from ...
Strategies for selecting crosses using genomic prediction in two wheat breeding programs
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
The single most important decision in plant breeding programs is the selection of appropriate crosses. The ideal cross would provide superior predicted progeny performance and enough diversity to maintain genetic gain. The ...
Genetic potential of winter wheat grain quality in Central Asia
(Look Academic Publisher, 2016)
The grain quality of winter wheat varies significantly by cultivars and growing region, not previously differentiated by end-use (baking, confectionery, etc.) in the national breeding programs. In these conditions it is ...
Crop breeding chips and genotyping platforms: progress, challenges, and perspectives
There is a rapidly rising trend in the development and application of molecular marker assays for gene mapping and discovery in field crops and trees. Thus far, more than 50 SNP arrays and 15 different types of ...
A systematic review of rye (Secale cereale L.) as a source of resistance to pathogens and pests in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Wheat is globally one of the most important crops. With the current human population growth rate, there is an increasing need to raise wheat productivity by means of plant breeding, along with development of more efficient ...
Sub-Saharan African maize-based foods: technological perspectives to increase the food and nutrition security impacts of maize breeding programmes
The demand for maize in Sub-Saharan Africa will triple by 2050 due to rapid population growth, while challenges from climate change will threaten agricultural productivity. Most maize breeding programmes have focused on ...
Breeding and genetic estimation of spring bread wheat populations of the Siberian shuttle breeding nursery of CIMMYT
(Institute of Cytology and Genetics of Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 2012)
Shuttle breeding contributes much to the breeding to common wheatvarieties resistantto adverse environmental factors by involving new sources of valuable biological and economical features from the world?s gene pool. ...
Estimation of physiological genomic estimated breeding values (PGEBV) combining full hyperspectral and marker data across environments for grain yield under combined heat and drought stress in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2019)
High throughput phenotyping technologies are lagging behind modern marker technology impairing the use of secondary traits to increase genetic gains in plant breeding. We aimed to assess whether the combined use of ...
Genome wide association study of karnal bunt resistance in a wheat germplasm collection from Afghanistan
Karnal bunt disease of wheat, caused by the fungus Neovossia indica, is one of the most important challenges to the grain industry as it affects the grain quality and also restricts the international movement of infected ...
