WORKING AREAS: Application and development of tools and methods provided by genome analysis to understand composition of complex traits and phenomena, to determine and exploit genetic diversity in elite and exotic germplasm, and apply this knowledge to plant breeding. Crop focus is on maize and perennial grasses. Most current activities are aiming at the development of gene-derived, “functional” markers and their implementation in plant breeding, in particular in breeding bioenergy crops. A recent research focus is on doubled haploid technology and application in plant breeding (http://www.plantbreeding.iastate.edu/DHF/DHF.htm).
