Research areas

The Uauy lab is focused on using genetics and genomics to improve both yield and quality components in wheat.

The lab uses molecular genetic approaches to identify genes involved in wheat productivity traits and enhance the translation of this knowledge into improved varieties for industry and consumers.

They aim to understand the mechanisms by which these genes function in order to develop the most rational strategies to deploy these genes into commercial varieties.

Their research comes under four main areas;
