Chris (Robert) Gaynor

My research interest is in developing and testing new techniques to improve the efficiency of plant breeding programs. Prior to joining the AlphaGenes group, I spent over 10 years working in applied wheat breeding programs at Oregon State University and Kansas State University. Currently, I work on a range of topics primarily dealing with basic quantitative genetics, genomic selection, and stochastic simulations of breeding programs. My main research focus is developing and using AlphaSimR, our stochastic simulation software program.
