Genomic , Marker-Assisted , and Pedigree-BLUP Selection Methods for b-Glucan Concentration in Elite Oat

  title={Genomic , Marker-Assisted , and Pedigree-BLUP Selection Methods for b-Glucan Concentration in Elite Oat},
  author={Franco G. Asoro and Mark R. Newell and William D. Beavis and Marvin Paul Scott and Nicholas A. Tinker and Jean-Luc Jannink},
b-glucan, a soluble fiber found in oat (Avena sativa L.) grain, is good for human health, and selection for higher levels of this compound is regarded as an important breeding objective. recent advances in oat DNA markers present an opportunity to investigate new selection methods for polygenic traits such as b-glucan concentration. our objectives in this study were to compare genomic, marker-assisted, and best linear unbiased prediction (BLUp)–based phenotypic selection for short-term response… CONTINUE READING
