Prediction of Genetic Values of Quantitative Traits in Plant Breeding Using Pedigree and Molecular Markers
The availability of dense molecular markers has made possible the use of genomic selection (GS) for plant breeding. However, the evaluation of models for GS in real plant populations is very limited. This article evaluates ...
An accurate DNA marker assay for stem rust resistance gene Sr2 in wheat
The stem rust resistance gene Sr2 has provided broad-spectrum protection against stem rust (Puccinia graminis Pers. f. sp. tritici) since its wide spread deployment in wheat from the 1940s. Because Sr2 confers partial ...
Genetic structures of the CIMMYT international yield trial targeted to irrigated environments
International yield trials are assembled by CIMMYT to disseminate promising wheat breeding materials worldwide. To assess the genomic structure and linkage disequilibrium (LD) within this germplasm, wheat lines disseminated ...
Genomic prediction of genetic values for resistance to wheat rusts
Durable resistance to the rust diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) can be achieved by developing lines that have race-nonspecific adult plant resistance conferred by multiple minor slow-rusting genes. Genomic selection ...
Wheat genetic resources enhancement by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT)
The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) acts as a catalyst and leader in a global maize and wheat innovation network that serves the poor in the developing world. Drawing on strong science and effective ...
Association analysis of historical bread wheat germplasm using additive genetic covariance of relatives and population structure
Linkage disequilibrium can be used for identifying associations between traits of interest and genetic markers. This study used mapped diversity array technology (DArT) markers to find associations with resistance to stem ...
Single-step genomic and pedigree genotype x environment interaction models for predicting wheat lines in international environments
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
Genomic prediction models have been commonly used in plant breeding but only in reduced datasets comprising a few hundred genotyped individuals. However, pedigree information for an entire breeding population is frequently ...
