Hiroyoshi Iwata, associate professor, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, University of Tokyo, presents, “How to Model GxE and Use It for Plant Breeding: Examples From Our Researches.” Modeling genotype-environment interactions (GxE) and the use of GxE for genetic improvement have long been an important topic in breeding. We have been working on modeling GxE in rice and soybean. We are developing models to utilize high-throughput phenotyping data and historical breeding data. He will introduce their modeling approaches and present future perspectives on the potential use of GxE for genetic improvement.
