Who we are?

Students of the WheatCAP consortium are located at the preeminent plant breeding and genetics programs across the nation, many of which are in the most prominent wheat producing states. The graduate student cohort is comprised of 17 PhD and four master’s students, all focusing on addressing prominent yield issues. The overall goal of student research entails the validation, characterization and deployment of QTL underlying grain yield in wheat.
