Genomewide selection (GWS) is markerassisted selection without identifying markers with signifi cant effects. Our previous work with the intermated B73 × Mo17 maize (Zea mays L.) population revealed signifi cant variation for grain yield and stover-quality traits important for cellulosic ethanol production. Our objectives were to determine (i) if realized gains from selection are larger with GWS than with markerassisted recurrent selection (MARS), which involves selection for markers with…

Genetic Gains in Grain Yield of a Maize Population Improved through Marker Assisted Recurrent Selection under Stress and Non-stress Conditions in West Africa

The effectiveness of MARS is demonstrated in increasing the frequency of favorable alleles for tolerance to drought without disrupting the level of resistance to Striga in a bi-parental population targeted as a source of improved maize inbred lines.

Gain from genomic selection for a selection index in two‐row spring barley

The results indicate GS is a useful method to improve selection on index values with different weights, and inbreeding was increased by GS compared with PS but restricted mating of high breeding value individuals limited potential inbreeding.

Genetic Gains in Yield and Yield Related Traits under Drought Stress and Favorable Environments in a Maize Population Improved Using Marker Assisted Recurrent Selection

The results underscore the effectiveness of MARS for improvement of GY under DS condition and show improvement in drought tolerance and grain yield in a biparental cross of two elite drought tolerant lines.

Genetic Gains in Grain Yield Through Genomic Selection in Eight Bi-parental Maize Populations under Drought Stress

It is demonstrated that genomic selection is more effective than pedigree-based conventional phenotypic selection for increasing genetic gains in grain yield under drought stress in tropical maize.

Genomic selection on shelling percentage and other traits for maize

The exotic germplasm LK1 is used to improve the shelling percentage of Qi319 by GS to provide a basis for genome-wide selection technology in maize breeding, and lay the groundwork for the application of GS to germplasms that are useful in China.

Genome-Enabled Prediction Models for Yield Related Traits in Chickpea

The necessary resources for deployment of genetic selection unlike marker-assisted backcrossing (MABC) in chickpea breeding are established and kinship matrix calculated using genotyping data reaffirmed existence of two different groups within selected lines.

An experimental approach for estimating the genomic selection advantage for Fusarium head blight and Septoria tritici blotch in winter wheat

The genomic selection advantage for Fusarium head blight is promising but failed for Septoria tritici blotch; the implementation of GS for FHB resistance, plant height and heading date seems to be promising; and the selection of new breeding parents based on GEBVs must be treated with caution.

Drought Tolerance in Maize: Indirect Selection through Secondary Traits versus Genomewide Selection

The results suggest that genomewide selection could increase genetic gains per unit time for grain yield under drought, and that genotyping is cheaper than phenotyping for drought tolerance.

An experimental approach for estimating the genomic selection advantage for Fusarium head blight and Septoria tritici blotch in winter wheat

The genomic selection advantage for Fusarium head blight is promising but failed for Septoria tritici blotch, and the implementation of GS for FHB resistance, plant height and heading date seems to be promising for traits with very strong genotype × environment variance.

Genetic gains with rapid‐cycle genomic selection for combined drought and waterlogging tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)

The genetic diversity of the two populations did not change significantly after two cycles of GS, suggesting that RC‐GS can be an effective breeding strategy to achieve high genetic gains without losing genetic diversity.

Four different original methods of genomic selection that differ with respect to assumptions regarding distribution of marker effects are presented, including ridge regression–best linear unbiased prediction (RR–BLUP), Bayes A, (iii) Bayes Cπ, and (iv) Bayesian LASSO, which suggest that alternative approaches to genomic selection prediction models may perform differently for traits with distinct genetic properties.
