Most agriculturally significant crop traits are quantitatively inherited which limits the ease and efficiency of trait dissection. Multi-parent populations overcome the limitations of traditional trait mapping and offer new potential to accurately define the genetic basis of complex crop traits. The increasing popularity and use of nested association(More)
In this paper, we argue that the collection of high-throughput phenotype data from fi eld trials (HTP) (Montes et al. 2007 ; Araus and Cairns 2014) can be integrated directly into plant breeding programs in a manner analogous to the use of high-density marker data in genomic selection (GS) (Meuwissen et al. 2001 ; Jannink et al. 2010). We focus on our own(More)
F amily physicians, particularly those who work in emergency rooms or act as physicians for sports teams, are often confronted with concussion. Although concussion can result from a variety of everyday activities, this article will focus on sports-related concussion. When the injury happens, physicians must consider whether a player can resume play. If a(More)
This thesis considers the construction of a system to support the total design cycle for control systems. This encompasses modelling of the plant to be controlled, specification of the final ob­ jectives or performance, design of the required controllers and their implementation in hardware and software. The main contributions of this thesis are : its(More)
