Prediction of maize hybrid performance using similarity in state and similarity by descent information

D. V. Ferreira, Von Pinho, R. G., Balestre, M., and Oliveira, R. L., Prediction of maize hybrid performance using similarity in state and similarity by descent information, vol. 9, pp. 2381-2394, 2010.

We evaluated the efficiency of the best linear unbiased predictor (BLUP) and the influence of the use of similarity in state (SIS) and similarity by descent (SBD) in the prediction of untested maize hybrids. Nine inbred lines of maize were crossed using a randomized complete diallel method. These materials were genotyped with 48 microsatellite markers (SSR) associated with the QTL regions for grain yield.
