Congratulations to Martín Sarinelli

Martín was the first graduate student in the 17 year history of the US Wheat and Barley Scab Forum to present an invited Plenary Session talk in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Tuesday.  The international audience comprised over 200 wheat and barley researchers.

Martín discussed his cooperative research with wheat breeding PI’s across the Southern and Eastern US on implementing genomic selection approaches to wheat improvement

Because of Martin’s research, and following the centralizing trend in private industry when it comes to genomic selection, Gina Brown-Guedira’s USDA-ARS Eastern Genomics Lab in Williams Hall has emerged as a key hub in public wheat breeding in the eastern and southern US
