E. J. Oliveira, Santana, F. A., Oliveira, L. A., and Santos, V. S., Genetic parameters and prediction of genotypic values for root quality traits in cassava using REML/BLUP, vol. 13, pp. 6683-6700, 2014.

The aim of this study was to estimate the genetic parameters and predict the genotypic values of root quality traits in cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) using restricted maximum likelihood (REML) and best linear unbiased prediction (BLUP). A total of 471 cassava accessions were evaluated over two years of cultivation. The evaluated traits included amylose content (AML), root dry matter (DMC), cyanogenic compounds (CyC), and starch yield (StYi).
