Applications of machine learning methods to genomic selection in breeding wheat for rust resistance
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
New methods and algorithms are being developed for predicting untested phenotypes in schemes commonly used in genomic selection (GS). The prediction of disease resistance in GS has its own peculiarities: a) there is consensus ...
Breeding-assisted genomics : applying meta- GWAS for milling and baking quality in CIMMYT wheat breeding program
(Public Library of Science; Public Library of Science, 2018)
One of the biggest challenges for genetic studies on natural or unstructured populations is the unbalanced datasets where individuals are measured at different times and environments. This problem is also common in crop ...
Predicting grain yield using canopy hyperspectral reflectance in wheat breeding data
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Background: Modern agriculture uses hyperspectral cameras to obtain hundreds of reflectance data measured at discrete narrow bands to cover the whole visible light spectrum and part of the infrared and ultraviolet light ...
Breeding value of primary synthetic wheat genotypes for grain yield
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
An association mapping panel, named as CIMMYT Asia association mapping (CAAM) panel, involving 396 diverse tropical maize lines were phenotyped for various structural and functional traits of roots under drought and ...
Time-series multispectral indices from unmanned aerial vehicle imagery reveal senescence rate in bread wheat
Detection of senescence's dynamics in crop breeding is time consuming and needs considerable details regarding its rate of progression and intensity. Normalized difference red-edge index (NDREI) along with four other ...
Strategies for selecting crosses using genomic prediction in two wheat breeding programs
The single most important decision in plant breeding programs is the selection of appropriate crosses. The ideal cross would provide superior predicted progeny performance and enough diversity to maintain genetic gain. The ...
