Evaluate host genotypes for their general and specific resistance


This is a function when the biplot is used in visual analysis of host genotype by pathogen strain two-way data. For the evaluation of host genotypes, the following biplot is most informative:



Note this biplot have the following settings (compare with pathogen race evaluation):


1. host genotypes are treated as entries and pathogen strains as testers;


2. tester-centered model (centering = 2);


3. entry-focused scaling (SVP =1); and


4. the average-tester coordination view




H30 > H-Betzes > ... > H33 = Average > ... > H10 = H32 > H16. H30 is most susceptible, and H16 the most resistant.
