Dr. Murray's research focuses on molecular quantitative genetics as well as applied maize breeding. He identifies and quantifies genetic effects in maize for tolerance and resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses along with introgression of exotic germplasm into adaptedsubtropical and temperate germplasm. Dr. Murray develops germplasm with improved grain quality, processing properties, and value-added traits. He uses QTL mapping, association mapping, and genomic selection to expedite the breeding process.
