One-minute science: Cesar Petroli and genomic profiles

Developing genomic profiles of DNA samples can accelerate the breeding process.

Cesar Petroli, High-throughput Genotyping Specialist with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), develops genomic profiles of DNA samples,Ā generating tens or even hundreds of thousands of molecular markers. This helps the team to set up genetic diversity analysis, improveĀ genebankĀ collections management and identify genomic regions associated with the expression of important agronomic traits.

Watch him explainĀ how this molecular information can help the breeding process, to ultimately help farmers face climate change and food security challenges.
