GenomicMating-package: Efficient Breeding by Genomic Mating

Description Author(s) References


Implements the mate selection approach in: Akdemir and Sanchez. ”Efficient Breeding by Genomic Mating.” Frontiers in Genetics (2016). Importance parameters were rescaled to the range [0,1]. A function to find points on the frontier was added in V1. V2.0 includes additional methods of calculation of mating statistics such as described in Lehermeier (2018) and using simulation of progeny in addition to optimization over multiple traits.
