Semi-parametric genomic-enabled prediction of genetic values using reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces methods
Prediction of genetic values is a central problem in quantitative genetics. Over many decades, such predictions have been successfully accomplished using information on phenotypic records and family structure usually ...
Prediction of Genetic Values of Quantitative Traits in Plant Breeding Using Pedigree and Molecular Markers
The availability of dense molecular markers has made possible the use of genomic selection (GS) for plant breeding. However, the evaluation of models for GS in real plant populations is very limited. This article evaluates ...
Genomic prediction of breeding values when modeling genotype × environment interaction using pedigree and dense molecular markers
Genomic selection (GS) has become an important aid in plant and animal breeding. Multienvironment (multitrait) models allow borrowing of information across environments (traits), which could enhance prediction accuracy. ...
A molecular selection index method based on Eigenanalysis
The traditional molecular selection index (MSI) employed in marker-assisted selection maximizes the selection response by combining information on molecular markers linked to quantitative trait loci (QTL) and phenotypic ...
Genetic analysis of slow-rusting resistance to leaf rust in durum wheat
Leaf rust (caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks.) is a widespread disease of wheat (Triticum spp.) that can be controlled effectively through the use of genetic resistance. Little is known about the slow-rusting type of ...

Global adaptation patterns of Australian and CIMMYT spring bread wheat
The International Adaptation Trial (IAT) is a special purpose nursery designed to investigate the genotype-by-environment interactions and worldwide adaptation for grain yield of Australian and CIMMYT spring bread wheat ...
