“Improving Plant Breeding efficiency with Quantitative Genetics”- Lucia Gutierrez

Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at 12:20pm

Emerson Hall, 135

Lucia Gutierrez
Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin

Program Description: Some of the most relevant traits in Agriculture (like yield, grain quality, and some diseases) are complex, quantitative traits. My program focuses on breeding cereals for more sustainable agricultural systems by working on the study of complex quantitative traits and the development, comparison, and deployment of new methodologies for quantitative genetics data analysis for plant breeding. We use genomic data to unveiling new genetic diversity to deploy in breeding programs in three areas: 1) population genetics and diversity; 2) quantitative genetics applied to plant breeding; and 3) experimental designs and multi-environment studies for large genetic data. Our focus is in breeding of cereals such as oats, wheat, and barley.
