Can BLUP and REML be improved upon?

, : Can BLUP and REML be improved upon?. Proceedings of the 4th World Congress on Genetics applied to Livestock Production, Edinburgh 23-27 July 1990 XIII Plenary lectures, molecular genetics and mapping, selection, prediction and estimation: 445-449

Non-linear, biased estimators and predictors of the James-Stein form were compared numerically with max. likelihood estimation of fixed effects and BLUP prediction. It is shown that, for some situations, relative to max. likelihood and BLUP, considerable improvement can be achieved in terms of conditional mean squared error and conditional absolute error by using James-Stein-type estimators and predictors. The possibility of improving upon Restricted Max.

To facilitate marker-assisted breeding and genetic analyses of pepper (<em>Capsicum annuum</em>), we developed non-redundant 2- or 3-base simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers from enriched <em>C. annuum</em> genomic librari...

Time-dependent changes of the [3H]-proline-labeled noncollagenous proteins synthesized by the osteogenic cell-line MC3T3-E1 were analyzed over a range starting from cell confluency to 13 days after confluency during which time cells formed a bone-...

Although there are several techniques currently available to assess skeletal integrity in live birds, few offer important features for application in a commercial setting, offering ease of use and moderate cost. Quantitative ultrasonography (QUS)...

An alternative iron removal treatment method using liquid-liquid extraction with the room-temperature ionic liquid, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide, as a solvent medium was studied. The chelating agent 1,10-phenanthr...

In many malignant cells, both the anchorage requirement for survival and the function of the p53 tumor suppressor gene are subverted. These effects are consistent with the hypothesis that survival signals from extracellular matrix (ECM) suppress a...
