Lorena

Research Fellow

My research focus is on Plant Breeding and quantitative genetics. During my masters I have worked with multi-generational analysis of common bean trials and during my PhD I worked mainly adapting existing genotyping pipelines and genomic selection models to the complexity found in the sugarcane genome. At the Roslin Institute my main goal is to develop models to jointly analyse global-scale breeding programs data sets in order to obtain accurate predictions of untested individuals in any possible environment. Once predictions are available, my work is to also devise, simulate and validate new breeding strategies that would make optimal use of these predictions to maximize profit in breeding programs.
