A general Bayesian estimation method of linear-bilinear models applied to plant breeding trials with genotype × environment interaction
(Springer Verlag; American Statistical Association; International Biometrics Society, 2012)
Statistical analyses of two-way tables with interaction arise in many different fields of research. This study proposes the von Mises-Fisher distribution as a prior on the set of orthogonal matrices in a linear-bilinear ...
Sample size under inverse negative binomial group testing for accuracy in parameter estimation
(Public Library of Science, 2012)
Background. The group testing method has been proposed for the detection and estimation of genetically modified plants (adventitious presence of unwanted transgenic plants, AP). For binary response variables (presence or ...
Multi-trait and multi-environment QTL analyses for resistance to wheat diseases
(Public Library of Science, 2012)
Background: Stripe rust, leaf rust, tan spot, and Karnal bunt are economically significant diseases impacting wheat production. The objectives of this study were to identify quantitative trait loci for resistance to these ...
QTL mapping in three tropical maize populations reveals a set of constitutive and adaptive genomic regions for drought tolerance
Despite numerous published reports of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for drought-related traits, practical applications of such QTL in maize improvement are scarce. Identifying QTL of sizeable effects that express more or ...
Genome-enabled prediction of genetic values using radial basis function neural networks
The availability of high density panels of molecular markers has prompted the adoption of genomic selection (GS) methods in animal and plant breeding. In GS, parametric, semi-parametric and non-parametric regressions models ...
Core Hunter: an algorithm for sampling genetic resources based on multiple genetic measures
(BioMed Central, 2009)
Background: Existing algorithms and methods for forming diverse core subsets currently address either allele representativeness (breeder's preference) or allele richness (taxonomist's preference). The main objective of ...
Effectiveness of Genomic Prediction of Maize Hybrid Performance in Different Breeding Populations and Environments
(Genetics Society of America, 2012)
Genomic prediction is expected to considerably increase genetic gains by increasing selection intensity and accelerating the breeding cycle. In this study, marker effects estimated in 255 diverse maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids ...
Genomic-enabled prediction based on molecular markers and pedigree using the Bayesian linear regression package in R
(Crop Science Society of America, 2010)
The availability of dense molecular markers has made possible the use of genomic selection in plant and animal breeding. However, models for genomic selection pose several computational and statistical challenges and require ...
1.4 screening experimental designs for quantitative trait loci, association mapping, genotype-by environment interaction, and other investigations
Crop breeding programs using conventional approaches, as well as new biotechnological tools, rely heavily on data resulting from the evaluation of genotypes in different environmental conditions (agronomic practices, ...
Effect of leaf rust on grain yield and yield traits of durum wheats with race-specific and slow-rusting resistance to leaf rust
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2006)
