摘要:

Due to the complexity of modeling, the multivariate genomic
selection (GS) models have not been adequately studied and their potential advantages over univariate GS models remain unclear. In this study, we developed a novel bivariate (2D) BLUP-HAT GS method by leveraging computationally efficient HAT method. The advantages of using the new bivariate GS model over the univariate (1D) BLUP-HAT GS model have been demonstrated by analyzing 4 conventional traits and 1000 metabolomic traits of rice. The results indicated that (1) the 2D GS analysis generally produces higher predictability than the 1D GS analysis, and (2) lowheritability traits may significantly benefit from the 2D GS analysis when paired with a high-heritability trait.
