  • Patent number: 11174522
    Abstract: Methods and compositions to impute or predict genotype, haplotype, molecular phenotype, agronomic phenotypes, and/or coancestry are provided. Methods and compositions provided include using latent space to generate latent space representations or latent vectors that are independent of underlying genotypic or phenotypic data. The methods may include generating a universal latent space representation by encoding discrete or continuous variables derived from genotypic or phenotypic data into latent vectors through a machine learning-based encoder framework. Provided herein are universal methods of parametrically representing genotypic or phenotypic data obtained from one or more populations or sample sets to impute or predict a genotype or phenotype of interest.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20210307274
    Abstract: Various methods are provided for determining progeny plant genotypes from a pooled sample. The methods include genotyping marker alleles in two or more progeny plants, each resulting from a different parental cross. The methods utilize in-silico deconvolution implementing Hidden Markov Modeling to determine a probability of each possible genotype for one or more marker loci in at least one progeny plant from the genetic signal generated from the pooled samples. The present methods provide for increased efficiency in genotyping progeny plants.

  • Publication number: 20200168299
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for designing nucleotide guides for site-specific genome editing that also minimize off-target genome edits. Systems and methods are described for using these nucleotide guides to edit specific genomic regions and minimize edits to genomic regions not intended for editing.
