A bayesian poisson-lognormal model for count data for multiple-trait multiple-environment genomic-enabled prediction
(Genetics Society of America, 2017)
When a plant scientist wishes to make genomic-enabled predictions of multiple traits measured in multiple individuals in multiple environments, the most common strategy for performing the analysis is to use a single trait ...
Effect of bed planting and zero tillage on productivity and water use of Irrigated maize - wheat cropping system in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan
(Researchers Links, 2018)
Crop establishment methods like broadcasting of wheat and manual planting of maize on flat surface coupled with flood irrigation are used in irrigated maize–wheat system of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province that requires ...
Genomic prediction models for count data
(Springer Verlag, 2015)
Whole genome prediction models are useful tools for breeders when selecting candidate individuals early in life for rapid genetic gains. However, most prediction models developed so far assume that the response variable ...
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 ...
Drought susceptibility of modern rice varieties : an effect of linkage of drought tolerance with undesirable traits
(Nature Publishing, 2015)
Green Revolution (GR) rice varieties are high yielding but typically drought sensitive. This is partly due to the tight linkage between the loci governing plant height and drought tolerance. This linkage is illustrated ...
Novel structural and functional motifs in cellulose synthase (CesA) genes of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum, L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Cellulose is the primary determinant of mechanical strength in plant tissues. Late-season lodging is inversely related to the amount of cellulose in a unit length of the stem. Wheat is the most widely grown of all the crops ...
