Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Plant gene regulation and complex traits genetics"

Seminar | April 26 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall

Christine Queitsch, University of Washington

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

Our research focuses on two related fields: the genetic architecture of complex traits and the role of gene regulation and protein folding in generating heritable phenotypic variation. We advance complex trait genetics by ascertaining uncharacterized sequence variation and by resolving the relative importance of additive variation and epistasis in complex traits. Lastly, to improve the genotype- phenotype map, we envision molecular markers, applicable in any organism, that predict the penetrance of genetic variants in a given individual.
