Genomselektion inom växtförädling: Från teori till praktik

General themes

• Quantitative genetics in plant breeding.

• Concept on genotype-by-environment interaction (G×E) and methods for its analysis.

• Genetic models and their use in plant breeding.

• Basic concepts of association genetics and genomic-enabled prediction.



Learning outcomes

• Refreshing some basic ideas of quantitative genetics applied to plant breeding.

• Dissecting the genotype-by-environment interaction and estimating stability of genotypes.

• Understanding the conceptual framework of selection in plant breeding.

• Learning results that clearly show how biometrical genetics, association genetics genomic-estimated prediction of breeding values WORK!

• Knowing how to run some R codes for biometrical genetics, association genetics. and genomic-estimated prediction of breeding values involving different statistical models.
