Genomic selection accuracy increases with the use of high SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) coverage. However, such gains in coverage come at high costs, preventing their operational implementation by breeders. Low-density panels imputed to higher densities offer a cheaper alternative. Our study is one of the first to explore the imputation in a tree species: black poplar. About 1000 purebreed Populus nigra trees corresponding to a subsample of the French breeding population were selected… CONTINUE READING
