Abstract: Selection indices are estimates of the net genetic merit of the individual candidates for selection and are calculated based on phenotyping and molecular marker information collected on plants under selection in a breeding program. They reflect the breeding value of the plants and help breeders to choose the best ones for next generation. Rindsel is an R package that calculates phenotypic and molecular selection indices.
