This is proceeding of the 10th Asian Regional Maize Workshop held in Makassar, Indonesia during 20 - 23 October 2008, and co-organized by International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center CIMMYT), Mexico and The Indonesian ...
Identifying QTLs and epistasis in structured plant populations using adaptive mixed LASSO
Association analysis in important crop species has generated heightened interest for its potential in dissecting complex traits by utilizing diverse mapping populations. However, the mixed linear model approach is currently ...
A Bayesian decision theory approach for genomic selection
(Genetics Society of America, 2018)
Plant and animal breeders are interested in selecting the best individuals from a candidate set for the next breeding cycle. In this paper, we propose a formal method under the Bayesian decision theory framework to tackle ...

The abstracts herein are of presentations by crop experts for the workshop ?Wheat Yield consortium: Sponsored by SAGARPA?s international strategic component for increasing wheat performance, under the Sustainable Modernization ...
Molecular Assisted Breeding in Maize
Computer simulation in plant breeding
As a bridge between theory and experimentation, computer simulation has become a powerful tool in scientific research, providing not only preliminary validation of theories but also guidelines for empirical experiments. ...
High-throughput phenotyping enabled genetic dissection of crop lodging in wheat
(Frontiers Media, 2019)
Enhanced resistance in wheat against stem rust achieved by marker assisted backcrossing involving three independent Sr genes
Marker assisted backcrossing (MABC) was used to transfer the three stem rust (Puccinia graminis tritici)resistant genes Sr25, SrWeb and Sr50 into the popular Indian wheat cv. HUW234. The donor was theCIMMYT breeding line ...
