Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
Genetics of quantitative traits through a multi-omic approach

Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
Dissecting quantitative variation in the plant circadian clock

The seasonal timing of growth is critical for plant performance under both ecological and agricultural settings. The circadian clock holds a key place in such seasonal adaptation as crop adaptations to agriclimatic zones is realised.
