Genomewide selection within an A/B biparental cross is most advantageous if it could be effectively done before the cross is phenotyped. Our objectives were to determine if a general combining ability (GCA) model is useful for genomewide selection in an A/B cross, and to assess the influence of training population size (N GCA ), number of crosses pooled into the training population (N ´ ), linkage disequilibrium (r 2 ), and heritability (h 2 ) on the prediction accuracy with the GCA model.

Marker Imputation Before Genomewide Selection in Biparental Maize Populations

Marker imputation can be used to increase the number of markers in genomewide selection. Our objectives were to determine (i) if marker imputation increases the response to selection (R) and

Genomewide Selection of Parental Inbreds: Classes of Loci and Virtual Biparental Populations

Simulations indicated that when genomewide predictions for the trait as a whole were accurate, predictions of genotypic value at each class of loci were also accurate, and the usefulness of virtual populations for choosing parents in inbred development was proposed and analyzed.

Genomic Selection for Crop Improvement

Genomic selection would substantially accelerate the breeding cycle, enhancing gains per unit time and dramatically change the role of phenotyping, which would then serve to update prediction models and no longer to select lines.

Optimization of training sets for genomic prediction of early-stage single crosses in maize

It is found that designing a TRS based on PEVmean or CDmean criteria is useful for increasing the efficiency of genomic prediction of maize single crosses, and suggests that it may be worthwhile using an optimization algorithm to select a training population from all possible single crosses to maximize efficiency in training accurate models for hybrid genomic prediction.
