Books and Software
Professor Bernardo has written two textbooks published by Stemma Press as well as software that can be downloaded below:
Gaming software in which players allocate resources and make breeding decisions to develop a barley cultivar that meets standards for yield, protein, and disease resistance, all within a fixed budget.
Software for teaching
Simulation programs used in Genomewide Markers in Plant Breeding short course (June 1-7, 2021).

GModel and GModel2
No-frills software for linkage mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTL) in a biparental cross, or for association mapping in a germplasm collection.
RR-BLUP and RR-BLUP2
No-frills software for genomewide selection by ridge regression-best linear unbiased prediction. The software calculates genomewide marker effects, estimates the predictive ability by cross-validation, and (if desired) predicts the performance of a test population.
No-frills software that imputes missing marker data and identifies SNP loci that are monomorphic, have too many missing values, have minor allele frequencies that are too low, or that are redundant with other SNP loci.
