Oluwaseyi Shorinola

Postdoctoral Scientist

Biography

Oluwaseyi completed his PhD in wheat genetics at the John Innes Centre and currently works as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Uauy lab.

Oluwaseyi‘s PhD work focused on the cloning of a major QTL conferring resistance to pre-harvest sprouting (pre-mature grain germination).

Currently, Oluwaseyi is working on understanding the genetic control of root development in wheat using a combination of high-throughput phenotyping, forward and reverse genetics and mapping-by-sequencing approaches. This is important for designing custom root ideotypes that maximise water and nutrient uptake in crops, especially under resource-limiting conditions
