Genome‑wide association and genomic prediction of resistance to maize lethal necrosis disease in tropical maize germplasm
The maize lethal necrosis disease (MLND) caused by synergistic interaction of Maize chlorotic mottle virus and Sugarcane mosaic virus, and has emerged as a serious threat to maize production in eastern Africa since 2011. ...
Genomic prediction of gene bank wheat landraces
(Genetics Society of America, 2016)
This study examines genomic prediction within 8416 Mexican landrace accessions and 2403 Iranian landrace accessions stored in gene banks. The Mexican and Iranian collections were evaluated in separate field trials, including ...
Genomic prediction models for count data
(Springer Verlag; American Statistical Association; International Biometrics Society, 2015)
Whole genome prediction models are useful tools for breeders when selecting candidate individuals early in life for rapid genetic gains. However, most prediction models developed so far assume that the response variable ...
