Theory and practice of genomic selection: A short review
Asif Ashraf, Ram Vishwakarma
Genomic selection (GS) overcomes the drawback of marker assisted selection not being effective in improving complex polygenic traits. GS is a form of MAS that selects favourable individuals based on genomic estimated breeding values. But due to its limited scope in practical applicability and insufficient data on its practical use, Genomic selection is yet to make more advances in the field of plant breeding. Scope: With the current knowledge of GS algorithms and machine learning methods have been proposed for genomic prediction. With this progress has been made in genomic selection studies and its practical use in animal and plant breeding fields.
