Pflanzenbau und Pflanzenzüchtung II Biometrie und Populationsgenetik

Random intermating F2 populations was suggested for increasing the accuracy of genetic linkage maps. However, these expectations hold only true for infinite population sizes. In real word experiments with finite populations, often the reverse is the case and intermating reduces the accuracy of a genetic map. Frisch and Melchinger. 2008. Genetics 178:597-600 

Computer simulations are a tool for planning plant breeding programs. We show at the example of the introgression of a submergence tolerance gene in rice that computer simulations model the reality very well. Prigge et al. 2008. Theoretical and Applied Genetics 116:739-744

Genetic diversity is the basis for breeding progress. We analyzed the genetic diversity of the maize breeding material of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) in Mexico. Warburton et al. 2008. Crop Science 48:617-624

Suitable software is a prerequisite for integrating genomics research and practical plant breeding. We developed Plabsoft consisting of simulation routines, data analysis modules, and a database. Maurer et al. 2008. Euphytica 161:133-139. Heckenberger et al. 2008. Euphytica 161:173-179
