In this chapter we present an overview of genomic selection (GS) research in the small grain cereals and interpret some of the results across studies where there is a growing body of information. We also provide the reader with approaches to implementation of GS in applied breeding programs and how various scenarios affect gain from selection and cost relative to conventional breeding. Training population optimization is discussed as well as the factors that affect prediction accuracy. We conclude with comments on future research directions required to improve the efficiency of GS.
