Admas Alemu Abebe
I am involved in researches focused on genome-wide association analysis and genomic selection for resistance to various diseases in cereal crops. We apply high-throughput genotyping and phenotyping platforms for the detection and application of molecular tools in cereal crops breeding resistant to diseases including septoria, rust and powdery mildew.
