New computational methods and plant models for evolutionary genomics
This thesis is in the service of a greater understanding of the genetic basis of adaptive traits. Chapter 1 introduces background literature relevant to this thesis. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 develop novel methods and software for the analysis of genetic sequencing data. Chapter 5 details a large collaborative project to establish genetic resources in the model cereal Brachypodium, and perform a genome-wide association study for several agriculturally-relevant traits under two climate change...[Show more]
