|Title:||Optimum contribution selection using differential evolution||Contributor(s):||Carvalheiro, Roberto (author); de Queiroz, Sandra Aidar (author); Kinghorn, Brian (author)||Publication Date:||2010||DOI:||10.1590/S1516-35982010000700005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/7508||Abstract:||A program to determine optimum contribution selection using differential evolution was developed. The objective function to be optimized was composed by the expected merit of the future progeny and the coancestry among selected parents. Simulated and real datasets of populations with overlapping generations were used to validate and test the performance of the program. The program was computationally efficient and feasible for practical applications. The expected consequences of using the program, in contrast to empirical procedures to control inbreeding and/or to selection based exclusively on expected genetic merit, would be the improvement of the selection response and a more effective control of inbreeding.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia, 39(7), p. 1429-1436||Publisher:||Unversidade Federal de Vicosa||Place of Publication:||Vicosa, Brazil||ISSN:||1516-3598
