Cooperating PI’s will run field experiments on sets of progeny to obtain phenotypic data; they will also extract DNA and obtain marker data. We will analyze these data using several genomic selection methods to generate predictions of breeding and genetic values based on marker data. In parallel, we will use these data and other data available from historical trials to estimate breeding and genetic values directly from phenotype and pedigree data. We will then correlate predictions with directly observed data to evaluate the accuracy of genomic selection.
