Wolfgang Banzhaf has been awarded a grant from USDA Agriculture and Food Research Initiative

The main objective of this project is to develop prediction models that make use of large-scale environmental and genomic data to model genetic, environmental and gene-by-environment interactions. We will develop novel statistical and computational approaches for prediction methodology to address the interaction of climate and genomic variables in a changing environment. The new prediction models accounting for environmental parameters will be a powerful management tool for American agriculture and should help guide selection decisions in different environments. The quantification of effects of climate on agricultural production will be broadly significant for improved production and long-term resilience in a changing environment.
