Importancia da biometria no melhoramento
The impact of sample selection strategies on genetic diversity and representativeness in germplasm bank collections
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Background: Germplasm banks maintain collections representing the most comprehensive catalogue of native genetic diversity available for crop improvement. Users of germplasm banks are interested in a fixed number of samples ...
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 ...
Multi-trait, multi-environment genomic prediction of durum wheat with genomic best linear unbiased predictor and deep learning methods
Although durum wheat (Triticum turgidum var. durum Desf.) is a minor cereal crop representing just 5-7% of the world's total wheat crop, it is a staple food in Mediterranean countries, where it is used to produce pasta, ...
Optimum and decorrelated constrained multistage linear phenotypic selection indices theory
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2019)
Some authors have evaluated the unconstrained optimum and decorrelated multistage linear phenotypic selection indices (OMLPSI and DMLPSI, respectively) theory. We extended this index theory to the constrained multistage ...
A wheat chromosome 5AL region confers seedling resistance to both tan spot and Septoria nodorum blotch in two mapping populations
Tan spot (TS) and Septoria nodorum blotch (SNB), caused by Pyrenophora tritici-repentis and Parastagonospora nodorum, respectively, are important fungal leaf-spotting diseases of wheat that cause significant losses in grain ...
Benchmarking database systems for Genomic Selection implementation
(Oxford University Press, 2019)
With high-throughput genotyping systems now available, it has become feasible to fully integrate genotyping information into breeding programs. To make use of this information effectively requires DNA extraction facilities ...
