The main challenge breeders face is to satisfy the requirements of multiple markets growing environments. Genomic selection (GS) is an innovative and advanced method that can be used in this context. GS uses whole-genome marker information combined with phenotype information to assist breeders in selecting the very best individuals for the next generation based upon their genetic potential while decreasing the generation interval.
Appropriate experimental design and data analysis of breeding trials are essential. Genetwister offers assistance in the experimental design, taking into account all practical considerations of the breeding program.
