报告人简介

余建明博士现任美国爱荷华州立大学农学系先锋玉米育种特聘教授。余建明博士是植物遗传育种方面的专家。其主要研究方向包括基因定位方法(全基因组关联分析,关联和连锁复合作图)、分子育种方法(基因组选择)和复杂形状分子分析。

余建明于1994年毕业于西北农林科技大学获农学学士学位;19941998年在中国种子集团公司科研开发部工作19982000年在美国堪萨斯州立大学攻读硕士学位,获农学硕士学位2000年进入明尼苏达大学农学和植物遗传系攻读博士学位,2003年获得博士学位。余博士留校一年作博士后研究,研究方向是利用混合模型、分子标记、系谱和性状进行基因定位。余博士于20042006年在康奈尔大学基因组多样性研究所进行博士后研究,首次建立了混合模型关联作图的方法。该方法被广泛地应用于多个物种的全基因组关联分析研究(被引用1700多次)。

余博士2006年到2012堪萨斯州立大学农学系任职助理教授,2010年晋升教授2013起在爱荷华州立大学农学系工作,任副教授和先锋玉米育种特聘教授2017年晋升教授。

余博士现任“Plant Genome”编委,曾任“作物科学(2008-2010)” 和“Theoretical and Applied Genetics (2007-2011) 编委,任多次科研项目评审委员及多家学术杂志评审员。受邀讲座70次,发表学术论文70多篇,其中多篇论文被广泛引用。余博士在2010获北美作物协会“年轻学者奖”和“青年作物学家”。

Jianming Yu is Professor and Pioneer Distinguished Chair in Maize Breeding in the Department of Agronomy, Iowa State University. The focus of Yu’s program is to address significant questions in plant breeding by combining cutting-edge genomic technologies and quantitative genetics theories. In a recently completed study, Yu’s team demonstrated that a comprehensive strategy based on genomic selection and other relevant technologies can be designed to mine the natural heritage stored in numerous gene banks (Nature Plants 2:16150). In 2015, his research team published the first complete case of heterosis due to pseudo-overdominance (PNAS 112:11823-11828). In 2012, Yu’s team identified the Shattering1 gene and its homologs underlying the parallel domestication of multiple cereal species (Nature Genetics 44:720-724). Other recent research findings include quantifying genic and nongenic contributions to quantitative trait variation in maize (Genome Research 22:2436-2444), cloning of the Tan1 gene underlying a trait with incomplete domestication (PNAS 109:10281-10286), DNA base composition divergence (Nucleic Acids Research 43:3614-3625), and chromosome size variation (Molecular Biology and Evolution 28:1901–1911). Earlier significant research contributions include: genomic selection (GS)(Crop Science 47:1082-1090), nested association mapping (NAM)(Genetics 138:539-551), and mixed model method for genome-wide association studies (GWAS)(Nature Genetics 38:203-208). He is the recipient of the Emerging Leaders in Applied Plant Sciences Award from University of Minnesota in 2014, the Young Crop Scientist Award from Crop Science Society of America in 2010, and the Early Career Professional Award from ASA-CSSA-SSSA. Yu is a member of Raymond F. Baker Center for Plant Breeding and a Faculty Scholar of the Plant Science Institute.
