About the Presenter
Fikret T. Isik
Fikret Isik is Associate Professor and Associate Director of North Carolina State University Cooperative Tree Improvement Program. Dr. Isik has been awarded with USDA Secretary’s Honor Award, NATO post-doctoral fellowships, and the Turkish Higher Education Council honorary Associate Professor of genetics. He is currently involved in the following areas of research: 1) genomic prediction methods in forest tree breeding and development of tree breeding strategies for genomic era; 2) development of a quantitative model of the pathways and regulation of lignin biosynthesis in poplar and 3) pathogen by pine genotype interactions in the fusiform rust – Pinus taeda pathosystem.
