Effect of trait heritability, training population size and marker density on genomic prediction accuracy estimation in 22 bi-parental tropical maize populations
(Frontiers Media, 2017)
Genomic selection is being used increasingly in plant breeding to accelerate genetic gain per unit time. One of the most important applications of genomic selection in maize breeding is to predict and select the best ...
Optimal design of preliminary yield trials with genome-wide markers
Previous research on genomic selection (GS) has focused on predicting unphenotyped lines. GS can also improve the accuracy of phenotyped lines at low heritability, e.g., in a preliminary yield trial (PYT). Our first objective ...
Responses of tropical maize landraces to damage by Chilo partellus stem borer
The potential to manage insect pests using host-plant resistance exists, but has not been exploited adequately. The objective of this study was to determine the resistance of 75 tropical maize landraces through artificial ...
