Agronomy & Horticulture Seminar – Edward Buckler

How Can Transferable Biology and Breeding Contribute to Improving Food Systems and Climate Change?

Date: Time: 3:30 pm
via Zoom
Contact: Kaye Wolfe, kaye.wolfe@unl.edu
Edward Buckler, professor, USDA-ARS, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, presents “How Can Transferable Biology and Breeding Contribute to Improving Food Systems and Climate Change?” The demands of food production, fuels, nutrition, and climate change are going to require that thousands of species undergo genomic selection over the next two decades. Buckler uses machine learning and statistical models of chromatin structure, regulatory grammar, cis-expression, protein stability, and deleterious mutations to improve transferable genome wide predictions.
