Research Interest

Using the mixed effect approaches in quantitative genetic model development and evaluation and and their applications in genetics and plant breeding. • Developing a model framework and software that unifies different models for different types of responses including continuous, ordinal, and nominal distributions. • Developing linkage mapping algorithms with high accuracy to construct large-scale linkage maps. • Genetic mapping including QTL mapping and association mapping • Applications of spatial statistics in agriculture • Applications of resampling techiniques including permutation, jackknifing, and bootstraping to control type I error rates and increase testing powers when statistical assumptions are violated. • Using C++, Splus/R, and SAS to develop software specifically for genetics and breeding studies
