Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jun 1, 2020
End Date: May 31, 2022
To increase seed protein concentration in yellow pea cultivars by looking for useful genetic variation using genomic selection, particularly for germplasm enhancement that can potentially sustain long-term genetic gain in breeding programs.
a) Establishing a reference set. This project will construct a training set of entries for testing and optimizing genomic prediction models using machine learning. b) Assessing prediction accuracy from different methods by cross-validation. Many questions surrounding the implementation of genomic selection need to be answered so it is used most effectively.
