Postdoc in Genebank Genomics (f/m/d) 34/07/21
The research group Domestication Genomics studies domestication and adaptation processes and their interaction with genetic diversity in crops and their wild relatives. Research is mainly focused on the temperate cereals barley, wheat, and oat. We take advantage of the large number of wild and domesticated accessions that are maintained in the IPK genebank. We are currently conducting genebank genomics projects in wheat and barley with the aim of characterizing genetic diversity in our collections, comparing it to other genebanks and linking genotypes to agronomic phenotypes.
Analysis of genotyping-by-sequencing and whole-genome shotgun data of wheat and barley genebank accessions
Population genomic analysis of variation data
Comparing diversity matrices from different genebanks
Mapping traits by kmerGWAS
