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.
