SEMINAR

Genotype by Environment Data:

pedigree and genomic selection analysis using ASReml-R

Prof Brian Cullis & Dr Alison Smith

Centre for Bioinformatics and Biometrics, University of Wollongong

This seminar will use several data-sets to demonstrate the methods outlined in two papers:

  • Genomic selection and genomic estimated breeding values in genotype by environment data: a proof of concept for Radiata Pine Breeding Company. Brian Cullis, Alison Smith and Paul Jefferson. 

    

  • Selection tools built on factor analytic models for genotype by environment data.  Alison Smith and Brian Cullis.  

Note: The papers will be delivered by Prof Cullis and Dr Smith at the preceding Genetics Society of AustralAsia Annual Conference, in Dunedin, on Wednesday 5 July, however attending these talks is not a prerequisite. 

The seminar will also work through the ASReml-R syntax for model fitting and the R code for summarising results.

Brought to you by the VISG in association with Genetics Otago and in conjunction with the GSA/NZSBMB Conference 2017
