Keenan Amundsen

Welcome to the Amundsen Lab at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Our lab is focused on specialty crop breeding and genetics with special emphasis given to buffalograss and hops. At the genetic level, we characterize conditional responses of turfgrasses challenged with abiotic and biotic stress and with that information develop resources that inform plant breeding decisions. We rely on genetic and computational biology tools to develop molecular markers, identify molecular marker-trait associations, discriminate genotypes, and resolve genetic relationships.
