Genomic prediction is transforming animal and plant breeding and its utility to predict human disease risk is being explored. The method aims to predict an individual’s future phenotype based on only a DNA test. This lecture will introduce genomic prediction, including the basic concepts, main statistical models, validation strategies, and method limitations. Examples from animals and plants will help participants understand how they could apply genomic prediction.
