Data on a genome-wide association study of type 2 diabetes in a Maya population
Maya communities have been shown to exhibit type 2 diabetes (T2D) with high prevalence compared with Mexican mestizo populations. Furthermore, some variants associated with the risk for T2D have been described. In this ...
The impact of sample selection strategies on genetic diversity and representativeness in germplasm bank collections
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Background: Germplasm banks maintain collections representing the most comprehensive catalogue of native genetic diversity available for crop improvement. Users of germplasm banks are interested in a fixed number of samples ...
Efficiency of a constrained linear genomic selection index to predict the net genetic merit in plants
(Genetics Society of America, 2019)
The constrained linear genomic selection index (CLGSI) is a linear combination of genomic estimated breeding values useful for predicting the net genetic merit, which in turn is a linear combination of true unobservable ...
Multi-trait, multi-environment genomic prediction of durum wheat with genomic best linear unbiased predictor and deep learning methods
Although durum wheat (Triticum turgidum var. durum Desf.) is a minor cereal crop representing just 5-7% of the world's total wheat crop, it is a staple food in Mediterranean countries, where it is used to produce pasta, ...
