Updated: Dec 17, 2018

Sarah Jensen, PhD candidate at the Buckler Lab, was recently awarded a Frosty Hill Travel Grant from Cornell IP-CALS, which allowed her to spend a month studying at ICRISAT in Hyderabad, India with Drs. Rajeev Varshney and Santosh Deshpande.

Sarah Jensen presents research to ICRISAT collaborators.

Practical Haplotype Graph (PHG)

While there, Sarah worked on the sorghum Practical Haplotype Graph (PHG) which will be used to evaluate diversity in ICRISAT’s core sorghum collection. She also completed simulations modeling genomic selection for population improvement using conditions specific to the sorghum breeding program at ICRISAT
