Admas Alemu Abebe
A postdoc working on researches related to genomics of cereal crops for biotic and abiotic resistance.

Research

I am involved in research projects targeting identifying QTLs/genes via linkage- and linkage disequilibrium (LD)- based QTL mapping and genomic selection methods for resistance to various diseases and other critical agronomic traits in cereal crops. Through the application of high-throughput genotyping and phenotyping platforms, molecular markers are detected, validated and used for selection in cereal crops breeding resistant to diseases including septoria, rust and powdery mildew.
