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 flowering of apomixis : from mechanisms to genetic engineering
(CIMMYT; IRD; European Commission, 2001)
Apomixis, the asexual reproduction of plants through seeds, has received increasing attention as technological advances have led to a rapid increase in knowledge about cellular biology, molecular genetics, and the mechanisms ...
Gene flow among maize landraces, improved maize varieties, and teosinte : Implications for transgenic maize
Proceedings of a forum organized by the Mexican National Institute of Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock Research (INIFAP), the Mexican National Agricultural Biosafety Committee (CNBA), and the International Maize and ...
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. ...
