Genome-enabled prediction models for yield related traits in chickpea
Chapter 1. General introduction
We describe the main characteristics of two approaches to the linear selection indices theory. The first approach is called standard linear selection indices whereas the second of them is called eigen selection index ...
Fast-forward breeding for a food-secure world
A predetermined proportional gains eigen selection index method
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2016)
The most general linear phenotypic selection index (PSI) is the predetermined proportional gains phenotypic selection index (PPG-PSI) that allows imposing restrictions on the trait expected genetic gain values to make some ...
Genetic gains in yield and yield related traits under drought stress and favorable environments in a maize population improved using marker assisted recurrent selection
The objective of marker assisted recurrent selection (MARS) is to increase the frequency of favorable marker alleles in a population before inbred line extraction. This approach was used to improve drought tolerance and ...
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 ...
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 ...
Chapter 2. The linear phenotypic selection index theory
The main distinction in the linear phenotypic selection index (LPSI) theory is between the net genetic merit and the LPSI. The net genetic merit is a linear combination of the true unobservable breeding values of the traits ...
