  • Determining how to choose parents and conduct selections is a critical issue in plant breeding. The genetic and breeding simulation tool QuCim can predict the outcome of a cross under a specific selection scheme, when genetic information for the targetted traits is known. In this paper, we use genetic information from Australian wheat breeding programs about glutenin, as it relates to wheat quality, to predict the outcomes from some example crosses. The 8 Silverstar sister lines used in our… CONTINUE READING
