Hierarchical multiple-factor analysis for classifying genotypes based on phenotypic and genetic data
A numerical classification problem encountered by breeders and gene-bank curators is how to partition the original heterogeneous population of genotypes into non-overlapping homogeneous subpopulations. The measure of ...
META: A suite of sas programs to analyze multienvironment breeding trials
Multi-environment trials (METs) enable the evaluation of the same genotypes in a variety of environments and management conditions. We present here META (Multi Environment Trial Analysis), a suite of 31 SAS programs that ...
Bayesian functional regression as an alternative statistical analysis of high‑throughput phenotyping data of modern agriculture
(BioMed Central, 2018)
Background: Modern agriculture uses hyperspectral cameras with hundreds of reflectance data at discrete narrow bands measured in several environments. Recently, Montesinos-López et al. (Plant Methods 13(4):1–23, 2017a. ...
Data maize and wheat
From genebank to field-leveraging genomics to identify and bring novel native variation to breeding pools
(CIMMYT; SAGARPA; CGIAR, 2016)
Potentially valuable genetic variation, the raw material for crop improvement, remains untapped on genebank shelves, at a time when challenges to crop production are unprecedented. Genebanks should NOT be museums. They ...
Results of the 2008 regional and on-farm maize trials in West Africa
(CIMMYT; IITA, 2009)
Using molecular marker order to compare genetic structure in plant populations undergoing selection
Many ecological studies compare the genetic structure of populations undergoing natu- ral or artificial selection across different environments. High-throughput molecular markers are now commonly used for these comparisons ...
IBFIELDBOOK, an integrated breeding field book for plant breeding
The development of an integrated breeding field book (IBFieldbook) for different crops involves the generation, handling and analysis of large amounts of data. Managing the integration of environmental, pedigree, and ...
