Roberto Lozano| | Cornell University
Roberto Lozano is a postdoctoral associate at Cornell University. He is interested in how genomics can help scientist understand and predict phenotypes (traits). For the TERRA-MEPP project, he is developing a first-generation comparative sorghum-maize Haplotype Map (HapMap), which is a resource that will be useful for downstream quantitative studies to derive the genetic basis of complex traits in sorghum. Roberto earned his bachelor’s degree in biology from the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia and went on to earn his doctorate in plant breeding and genetics from Cornell University. His work has been published in many peer-reviewed publications, including PLoS One and BMC Genomics.
