Talk Title:  “Breeding 4.0? Sorting Through the Adaptive and Deleterious Variants Across Crop Genome”

Bio:

Edward Buckler is a Research Geneticist with the Senior Science and Technology Service at the USDA-ARS and is an Adjunct Professor of Plant Breeding and Genetics at Cornell University. He is recognized as a leader in the integration of quantitative and statistical genetics with genomic and bioinformatic approaches, applying these tools to maize and other crops. This work has provided insights into how complex traits are controlled, and he has identified genetic variation useful for crop improvement. Dr. Buckler’s group has also helped lead in the development of the largest public genetic mapping resources for any species. Their research has provided insights into the genetic diversity of species, the genetic architecture of complex traits, hybrid vigor, and the genes controlling numerous traits related to plant flowering, development, starch, and pro-Vitamin A. He has numerous leadership positions within the crop genetics community and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
