Quantitative genetics in maize

Crow wrote a paper "90 Years Ago: The Beginning of Hybrid Maize" in 1998. It is a nice overview of development of hybrid lines of maize - the theory as well as practice (using genetics and agricultural techniques).

On related topic, Edwards and Lamkey analysed effect of inbreeding from quantitative genetics perspective i.e. they estimated all components of variance due to dominant effect of alleles in noninbred and inbred individuals.
