Question about Estimating Heritability and BLUPs for Traits Using Tomato Phenotypic Data tutorial
First of all, I would like to thank the author, Heather L. Merk for this great tutorial. She might not know it, but she is helping a lot of passionate farmers/amateurstudents like me to understand how Linear Mix Models works and how to apply the theoterical knowledge into the practical real one.
Afte that, I would like to ask two things:
- Why do you select Lines as Random effects?
- Do you have more tutorials like this one for calculating variance components or how to estimate GCA/SCA in real variety trials? If so, could you share them?
Thanks again! Hope Heather finds out about this message :)
