Genomic prediction models were, in principle, developed to include all the available marker information; with this approach, these models have shown in various crops moderate to high predictive accuracies. Previous studies in cassava have demonstrated that, even with relatively small training populations and low-density genotyping by sequencing (GBS) markers, prediction models are feasible for genomic selection. In the present study, the author prioritized single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in close proximity to genome regions with biological importance for a given trait.
