Data analysis in the CIMMYT applied biotechnology center: for fingerprinting and genetic diversity studies
The molecular genetic characterization of the diversity present in the CIMMYT maize and wheat germplasm collections is an ongoing process, to which many different persons have contributed. Furthermore, one of the mandates ...
User's manual for the LCDMV software (calculation software of molecular distances between varieties): for fingerprinting and genetic diversity studies
LCDMV (in English, known as the Calculation Software of Molecular Distances between Varieties) is a computer program developed in the SAS language (SAS Institute Inc., version 6.12), with the help of the modules SAS-STAT, ...
SAS macro for analysing unreplicated designs
Augmented or unreplicated experiment designs have two type of treatments, the replicated checks and the unreplicated new entries. The latter are usually considered to be random effects while the checks treatments are ...
A reaction norm model for genomic selection using high-dimensional genomic and environmental data
In most agricultural crops the effects of genes on traits are modulated by environmental conditions, leading to genetic by environmental interaction (G × E). Modern genotyping technologies allow characterizing genomes in ...
Genomic prediction in CIMMYT maize and wheat breeding programs
(Springer Nature, 2014)
Genomic selection (GS) has been implemented in animal and plant species, and is regarded as a useful tool for accelerating genetic gains. Varying levels of genomic prediction accuracy have been obtained in plants, depending ...
The use of unbalanced historical data for genomic selection in an international wheat breeding program
Genomic selection (GS) offers breeders the possibility of using historic data and unbalanced breeding trials to form training populations for predicting the performance of new lines. However, when using datasets that are ...
Variability in glutenin subunit composition of Mediterranean durum wheat germplasm and its relationship with gluten strength
(Cambridge University Press, 2013)
The allelic composition at five glutenin loci was assessed by one-dimensional sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (1D SDS–PAGE) on a set of 155 landraces (from 21 Mediterranean countries) and 18 ...
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 ...
A singular value decomposition Bayesian multiple-trait and multiple-environment genomic model
(Springer Nature, 2019)
Today, breeders perform genomic-assisted breeding to improve more than one trait. However, frequently there are several traits under study at one time, and the implementation of current genomic multiple-trait and ...
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 ...
