The objective of my program is integrate breeding and research efforts in order to develop improved wheat cultivars. While the large majority of the breeding effort is traditional, other techniques such as genomic selection and marker assisted breeding tools are being actively developed and used. It is my goal to train students to be well-rounded scientists, with knowledge of both traditional and modern methods, and how to apply these methods to be successful plant breeders.
