About the Presenter

Dr. Johnie Jenkins, Research Geneticist with the USDA-ARS in Starkville, MS, was honored with the 2013 NAPB Lifetime Achievement Award. Johnie joined ARS in 1961 and has made and continues to make significant contributions to the science of plant breeding. Dr. Jenkins has been recognized in many other venues during his career, including induction into the USDA Hall of Fame in 2007. Johnie has been a leader in developing interdisciplinary teams to research host plant resistance in cotton, an effort that has brought about reduction of damage by several insect pests and nematodes. He pioneered the understanding of the effects of chemical differences among cotton strains on the variability of damage done by pests and performed seminal work on cotton fruiting, retention, and yield, developing the technique of “plant mapping” that is used throughout the industry today. Dr. Jenkins’ research has benefited the global cotton community through his mentoring of 71 graduate students from 12 countries.

About the Presenter

Dr. Murray’s research focuses on molecular quantitative genetics as well as applied maize breeding.  He identifies and quantifies genetic effects in maize for tolerance and resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses along with introgression of exotic germplasm into adaptedsubtropical and temperate germplasm.  Dr. Murray develops germplasm with improved grain quality, processing properties, and value-added traits.  He uses QTL mapping, association mapping, and genomic selection to expedite the breeding process.

Solutions and Sustainability in Soybean Breeding

Join the National Association of Plant Breeding and PBG Works for a webinar on soybean breeding by Thomas Carter of the USDA ARS in Raleigh, North Carolina . The webinar takes place on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 at 2PM Eastern Time (1PM Central, 12PM Mountain, 11AM Pacific Time). The webinar is free and advanced registration is required.

About the Presenter

Dr. Carter’s research mission is to provide innovative genetic solutions that help improve the nations’ profitability in soy production. As a geneticist and breeder, Dr. Carter’s attack on the problem is to broaden genetic diversity in applied U.S. soybean breeding. In that regard, crop diversity is recognized as the foundation of breeding progress and at the same time perhaps the weakest link in U.S. soybean breeding. Of the ~120 soybean breeders in the USA, Dr. Carter is one of only two (and the sole researcher in the southern USA) to devote his/her career to this issue.

About the Presenter

Dr. McGrath is the Research Geneticist (Plants) for USDA-ARS NP 301 (Plant Genetic Resources, Genomics and Genetic Improvement) CRIS Project entitled “Genetic Dissection of Traits for Sugar Beet Improvement” in the Sugarbeet and Bean Research Unit, East Lansing, Michigan.  Research is to develop enhanced sugarbeet germplasm and to discover genes of agronomic importance, and to characterize fungal pathogens and diseases limiting sugar production in the Great Lakes growing region. We generate and integrate basic genetic knowledge, methods, and biological resources for efficient, effective breeding and selection for desired characteristics; discover genetic control, linkage relationships, and specific genes contributing to desired agronomic, morphological, biochemical, and physiological characters; and use genomics to explore development of the beet root, particularly of early season development.

Soybeans: Way More Than Just Nice Yellow Seeds

This webinar on soybean breeding by Istvan Rajcan of the University of Guelph took place on May 13, 2015.

This webinar is part of the 2015 National Association of Plant Breeders (NAPB) Webinar Series. Find all upcoming and recorded webinars at https://plant-breeding-genomics.extension.org/webinar-registration-and-archive/

Handout of slides for this webinar

About the Presenter

Istvan Rajcan is involved in breeding soybeans to develop new high-yielding, high quality and disease resistant varieties for the short- and medium-season soybean growing areas of Canada. Most varieties developed in this program are rated within the range of 2400 to 2900 crop heat units (CHU), or relative maturity groups 000 to I (USDA classification). They are grown primarily in Ontario but also in Quebec, southern Manitoba and some European countries.  In support of the breeding program, research is conducted in two main focal areas of interest: (1) soybean seed quality traits in relation to developing value-added products for niche markets (output traits) and, (2) the genetics of soybean disease resistance.
