Application: Methods and systems for identifying progenies for use in plant breeding (Patent ID: US20230386609A1)

The patent filed by Bayer AG discloses methods for identifying progenies for plant breeding using a computer-implemented approach. The method involves accessing a data structure containing phenotypic data of progenies, determining prediction scores based on historical data, selecting progenies based on these scores, and identifying a set of progenies for further breeding phases. The system includes a data storage device, a computing device, and a breeding pipeline for commercialization, with the computing device generating prediction models and selecting progenies based on various factors like expected performance, risk of failure, genetic diversity, and traits.

The method further involves training prediction models based on historical phenotypic data, selecting progenies based on specific thresholds, and identifying progenies based on factors like genetic diversity, expected performance, and risk of failure. The system also allows for user input to identify the pool of progenies and considers factors like probability of success, deviation from desired profiles, and trait integration in the selection process. The non-transitory computer-readable storage media includes executable instructions for accessing data structures, determining prediction scores, selecting progenies, identifying sets of progenies based on various factors, and directing them to the next phase of the breeding pipeline. The instructions also cover training prediction models, selecting progenies based on thresholds, and identifying progenies based on specific algorithms and factors like deviation from profiles, risk, and trait integration.
