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 ...
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 ...
The Maize Molecular Atlas: a valuable resource for the world
Estimating maize genetic erosion in modernized smallholder agriculture
Replacement of crop landraces by modern varieties is thought to cause diversity loss. We studied genetic erosion in maize within a model system; modernized smallholder agriculture in southern Mexico. The local seed supply ...
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 ...
International triticeae mapping initiative workshop, 21.
This Book of Poster Abstracts contains information on the 21st International Triticeae Mapping Initiative Workshop, the event program, and the oral presentations for each session.
Molecular marker applications to plant breeding
The course will introduce participants to the basics of plant genome analysis and its application to plant breeding problems in both wheat and maize through lectures and hands-on exercises. Participants will learn the ...
Data analysis in the CIMMYT applied biotechnology center: for fingerprinting and genetic diversity studies
The molecular genetic characterization of the diversity present in the CIMMYT maize and wheat germplasm collections is an ongoing process, to which many different persons have contributed. Furthermore, one of the mandates ...
Application of biotechnologies to wheat breeding
The application of biotechn'ology to crop improvement has been the focus of much research around the world. Tissue culture and selection of somaclonal variation were developed many years ago, followed more recently by ...
