Genomic Selection (GS) is a new breeding method in which genome-wide markers are used to predict the breeding value of individuals in a breeding population. GS has been shown to improve breeding efficiency in dairy cattle and several crop plant species, and here we evaluate for the first time its efficacy for breeding inbred lines of rice. We performed a(More)
Population structure must be evaluated before optimization of the training set population. Maximizing the phenotypic variance captured by the training set is important for optimal performance. The optimization of the training set (TRS) in genomic selection has received much interest in both animal and plant breeding, because it is critical to the accuracy(More)
Selective sensitisation of malignant tumours to monochromatic light (photodynamic therapy, PDT) is a promising approach to cancer treatment, but current sensitisers are unsatisfactory and the parameters controlling effects produced in normal and neoplastic tissue are poorly understood. To quantify the effects in a relatively homogeneous organ, we carried(More)
Development of models to predict genotype by environment interactions, in unobserved environments, using environmental covariates, a crop model and genomic selection. Application to a large winter wheat dataset. Genotype by environment interaction (G*E) is one of the key issues when analyzing phenotypes. The use of environment data to model G*E has long(More)
This study examines genomic prediction within 8416 Mexican landrace accessions and 2403 Iranian landrace accessions stored in gene banks. The Mexican and Iranian collections were evaluated in separate field trials, including an optimum environment for several traits, and in two separate environments (drought, D and heat, H) for the highly heritable traits,(More)
In plant and animal breeding studies a distinction is made between the genetic value (additive plus epistatic genetic effects) and the breeding value (additive genetic effects) of an individual since it is expected that some of the epistatic genetic effects will be lost due to recombination. In this article, we argue that the breeder can take advantage of(More)
In this article, we imagine a breeding scenario with a population of individuals that have been genotyped but not phenotyped. We derived a computationally efficient statistic that uses this genetic information to measure the reliability of genomic estimated breeding values (GEBV) for a given set of individuals (test set) based on a training set of(More)
In this study 43 diagnosed and operated chronic subdural hematomas events analysed clinically in the Neurosurgical Department of Atatürk University Erzurum, Turkey. 60.4% of the patients were found to be under 60 years of age. The most frequent findings were pathological reflexes, and hemiparesis at the rates of 58.1% and 50.4% respectively. All of(More)
In this article, we propose several new approaches for post processing a large ensemble of conjunctive rules for supervised, semi-supervised and unsupervised learning problems. We show with various examples that for high dimensional regression problems the models constructed by post processing the rules with partial least squares regression have(More)
Four cases of alveolar hydatid disease of the brain encountered within 27 months in eastern Turkey are reported. All of the patients were male farmers who presented with signs of cerebral tumor. Two of the patients were shown to harbor hepatic lesions and one of them had pulmonary metastases. The cerebral lesions were removed in toto and neurological(More)
