Optimizing whole-genomic prediction for autotetraploid blueberry breeding

Ivone De Bem Oliveira, Rodrigo R. Amadeu, Luis Felipe Ferrão & Patricio R. Munoz
Blueberry (Vaccinium spp.) is an important autopolyploid crop with significant benefits for human health. Apart from its genetic complexity, the feasibility of genomic prediction has been proven for blueberry, enabling a reduction in the breeding cycle time and increasing genetic gain. However, as for other polyploid crops, sequencing costs still hinder the implementation of genome-based breeding methods for blueberry. This motivated us to evaluate the effect of training population sizes and composition, as well as...
