Genomic selection (GS) has become a commonly used technology in animal breeding. In crops, it is expected to significantly improve the genetic gains per unit of time. So far, its implementation in plant breeding has been mainly investigated in species farmed as homogeneous varieties. Concerning crops farmed in family pools, only a few theoretical studies(More)
We propose a method in which GBS data can be conveniently analyzed without calling genotypes. F2 families are frequently used in breeding of outcrossing species, for instance to obtain trait measurements on plots. We propose to perform association studies by obtaining a matching “family genotype” from sequencing a pooled sample of the family, and to(More)
The implementation of genomic selection (GS) in plant breeding, so far, has been mainly evaluated in crops farmed as homogeneous varieties, and the results have been generally positive. Fewer results are available for species, such as forage grasses, that are grown as heterogenous families (developed from multiparent crosses) in which the control of the(More)
By using the genotyping-by-sequencing method, it is feasible to characterize genomic relationships directly at the level of family pools and to estimate genomic heritabilities from phenotypes scored on family-pools in outbreeding species. Genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) has recently become a promising approach for characterizing plant genetic diversity on a(More)
