Cover for Forest-tree population genomics.

This chapter focuses on the use of genomic information to characterize forest tree population diversity, the relationship among populations, and the detection of loci that contribute to their adaptation. Other aspects related to population genetics of tree species, such as geographic variation,...

Cover for Quantitative genomics of forest-tree breeding.

This chapter discusses the quantitative genomics of forest tree breeding. The collective analysis of large numbers of variable loci in individuals of breeding populations is now feasible for several species, and is bound to become an essential tool to advance genetic gains in future tree breeding...

Cover for Best linear unbiased prediction of breeding value: univariate models with one random effect.

In this chapter, best linear unbiased prediction's (BLUP) theoretical background is briefly presented, considering a univariate animal model, and its application to several univariate models in genetic evaluation is illustrated. Constructing the mixed model equations, progeny (daughter) yield...

Cover for Molecular identification of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Phytophthora</i>.

With approximately 124 described species of Phytophthora, reliance on morphological characteristics for species identification is challenging, even for experienced researchers. While DNA sequence-based approaches are the most accurate for species identification, gel-based techniques can also be...

Cover for Population stratification in genetic association studies.

In evaluating evidence from genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of unrelated subjects, analysts must take care to avoid confounding by differences in allelic frequency that are associated with the trait for reasons other than a direct genetic influence, termed population stratification. "Global" ...
