Date: Apr 28, 2014. Robert Bukowski: HapMap3: large-scale genotyping for Zea mays

Robert Bukowski is a Senior Research Associate at the BRC Bioinformatics Facility on campus.

The maize HapMap project, currently at its third release, focuses on capturing allelic variation, including rare alleles, across a highly diverse set of maize germplasm. It is a part of ongoing effort in the pan-zea community to identify variants responsible for complex trait variation. I will present computational techniques we use to characterize genotypes of about 1,000 maize lines from Illumina whole-genome sequencing data.
