Case examples of crops adopting these systems and their current state are also presented.

Basics of Genomic Selection 3. Dealing with Accuracy

Other | 29/9/2021

Giovanny Covarrubias-Pazaran presents how to implement genomic prediction to increase the accuracy of field trials by using a genomic relationship matrix to predict haplotypes and individuals. This is especially useful when heritabilities in field trials are low.
