META: A suite of sas programs to analyze multienvironment breeding trials
(American Society of Agronomy, 2013)
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 ...
Genome-enabled prediction of genetic values using radial basis function neural networks
The availability of high density panels of molecular markers has prompted the adoption of genomic selection (GS) methods in animal and plant breeding. In GS, parametric, semi-parametric and non-parametric regressions models ...
A general Bayesian estimation method of linear-bilinear models applied to plant breeding trials with genotype × environment interaction
(Springer Verlag; American Statistical Association; International Biometrics Society, 2012)
Statistical analyses of two-way tables with interaction arise in many different fields of research. This study proposes the von Mises-Fisher distribution as a prior on the set of orthogonal matrices in a linear-bilinear ...
Diseños experimentales con testigos repetidos
(Colegio de Postgraduados, 2005)
In some stages of the breeding of crops, breeders must select the most promising lines from a very large number of sets of new varieties. Selection is conducted via direct comparison of new varieties that are tested within ...
Cluster analysis, an approach to sampling variability in maize accessions
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 1996)
Cluster analysis is frequently used to classify maize (Zen mays L.) accessions and can be used by breeders and geneticists to identify subsets of accessions which have potential utility for specific breeding or genetic ...
Sampling strategies for conserving maize diversity when forming core subsets using genetic markers
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2006)
Core subsets can be formed on the basis of molecular markers and different sampling strategies. This research used genetic markers on three maize data sets for studying 24 stratified sampling strategies to investigate which ...
Genomic prediction of breeding values when modeling genotype × environment interaction using pedigree and dense molecular markers
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2012)
Genomic selection (GS) has become an important aid in plant and animal breeding. Multienvironment (multitrait) models allow borrowing of information across environments (traits), which could enhance prediction accuracy. ...
Heterosis and combining ability of CIMMYT's tropical late white maize germplasm
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 1992)
Seven tropically adepted, late maturity maize gene pools and populations (Populations 21, 22, 25, 29, 32 and 43, and Pool 24) developed and improved at CIMMYT were crossed in a 7 x 7 diallel mating system. The parent and ...
Heterosis and combining ability of CIMMYT's tropical early and intermediate maturity maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 1990)
A 10 parent diallel was formed to determine combining ability and heterotic patterns among CIMMYT'S tropically adapted, early and intermediate maturity maize (Zea mays L.) gene pools and populations. The parents and their ...
Core Hunter: an algorithm for sampling genetic resources based on multiple genetic measures
(BioMed Central, 2009)
Background: Existing algorithms and methods for forming diverse core subsets currently address either allele representativeness (breeder's preference) or allele richness (taxonomist's preference). The main objective of ...
