A method for combining molecular markers and phenotypic attributes for classifying plant genotypes
Abstract Classifying genotypes into clusters based on DNA fingerprinting, and/or agronomic attributes, for studying genetic and phenotypic diversity is a common practice. Researchers are interested in knowing the minimum ...
Cluster analysis, an approach to sampling variability in maize accessions
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 ...
Classification of Peruvian highland maize races using plant traits
The maize of Latin America, with its enormous diversity, has played an important role in the development of modern maize cultivars of the American continent. Peruvian highland maize shows a high degree of variation stemming ...
Genomic prediction in maize breeding populations with genotyping-by sequencing
(Genetics Society of America, 2013)
Genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) technologies have proven capacity for delivering large numbers of marker genotypes with potentially less ascertainment bias than standard single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays. Therefore, ...
Evaluation of early to medium maturing open pollinated maize varieties in SADC region using GGE biplot based on the SREG model
Analysis of multi-environment trials (METs) of genotypes (G) and genotype × environment (GE) interactions for yield performance across environments, and selection of the best genotypes is an important routine in maize ...
