High concentrations of sacharose lead to metabolic changes that favor the formation of co-products in ethanolic fermentation by Zymomonas mobilis

Z. mobilis has attracted great biotechnology interest in recent decades due to its unique metabolism and the ability to produce bioethanol from simple sugars in an effectively and quickly way. Z. mobilis also produce other bioactive products as fructose, gluconic acid, sorbitol, levan, fructo-oligosaccharides. This study aimed to identify proteins differentially expressed by Z. mobilis ZAG-12 u.. Read More»

Artificial neural networks reveal efficiency in genetic value prediction

    L.A. Peixoto, L.L. Bhering and C.D. Cruz

The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of artificial neural networks (ANNs) for predicting genetic value in experiments carried out in randomized blocks. Sixteen scenarios were simulated with different values of heritability (10, 20, 30, and 40%), coefficient of variation (5 and 10%), and the number of genotypes per block (150 and 200 for validation, and 5000 for neural netw..

Determination of the optimal number of markers and individuals in a training population necessary for maximum prediction accuracy in F2 populations by using genomic selection models

    L.A. Peixoto, L.L. Bhering and C.D. Cruz

Genomic selection is a useful technique to assist breeders in selecting the best genotypes accurately. Phenotypic selection in the F2 generation presents with low accuracy as each genotype is represented by one individual; thus, genomic selection can increase selection accuracy at this stage of the breeding program. This study aimed to establish the optimal number o.. Read More»

Path analysis and canonical correlations for indirect selection of Jatropha genotypes with higher oil yield

    L.A. Silva, L.A. Peixoto, P.E. Teodoro, E.V. Rodrigues, B.G. Laviola, L.L. Bhering

Jatropha is a species with great potential for biodiesel production, and the knowledge on how the main agronomic traits are correlated will contribute to its improvement. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to estimate the genetic parameters of the traits: plant height at 12 and 40 months, canopy projection on the row at 12 and 40 months, canopy projection ..

Multivariate diallel analysis allows multiple gains in segregating populations for agronomic traits in Jatropha.

    P.E. Teodoro, E.V. Rodrigues, L.A. Peixoto, L.A. Silva, B.G. Laviola, L.L. Bhering

Jatropha is research target worldwide aimed at large-scale oil production for biodiesel and bio-kerosene. Its production potential is among 1200 and 1500 kg/ha of oil after the 4th year. This study aimed to estimate combining ability of Jatropha genotypes by multivariate diallel analysis to select parents and crosses that allow gains in important agronomic traits. W.. Read More»

Comparison of methods used to identify superior individuals in genomic selection in plant breeding

    L.L. Bhering, V.S. Junqueira, L.A. Peixoto, C.D. Cruz and B.G. Laviola

The aim of this study was to evaluate different methods used in genomic selection, and to verify those that select a higher proportion of individuals with superior genotypes. Thus, F2 populations of different sizes were simulated (100, 200, 500, and 1000 individuals) with 10 replications each. These consisted of 10 linkage groups (LG) of 100 cM each, containing 100 equally spaced markers per li.. Read More»

Minimum number of measurements for evaluating soursop (Annona muricata L.) yield

Repeatability studies on fruit species are of great importance to identify the minimum number of measurements necessary to accurately select superior genotypes. This study aimed to identify the most efficient method to estimate the repeatability coefficient (r) and predict the minimum number of measurements needed for a more accurate evaluation of soursop (Annona mu..

Selecting sugarcane genotypes by the selection index reveals high gain for technological quality traits

    L.A. Silva, P.E. Teodoro, L.A. Peixoto, C. Assis, K. Gasparini, M.H.P. Barbosa and L.L. Bhering

Sugarcane (Saccharum sp) is one of the most promising crops and researchers have sought for renewable alternative energy sources to reduce CO2 emission. The study of strategies, which allow breeders in the selection of superior genotypes for many traits simultaneously, is important. Therefore, the objectives of this study were: i) to apply path analysis to better un.. Read More»
