Genomic selection: genome-wide prediction in plant improvement.
Association analysis is used to measure relations between markers and quantitative trait loci (QTL). Their estimation ignores genes with small effects that trigger underpinning quantitative traits.Expand

Breeding schemes for the implementation of genomic selection in wheat (Triticum spp.).
In the last decade the breeding technology referred to as 'genomic selection' (GS) has been implemented in a variety of species, with particular success in animal breeding. Recent research shows theExpand
