Optimizing breeding schemes

Eduardo Covarrubias
As optimizing breeding schemes lead, Eduardo supports breeding programs to define processes, apply project management and quantitative genetics principles, and use computer simulations to optimize their breeding scheme. Eduardo studied crop sciences at the University of Chapingo, Mexico, and then gained his PhD in plant breeding with a specialization in quantitative genetics at the University of Wisconsin. Prior to joining EiB, Eduardo was the biometrics wheat lead at Bayer CropScience, now BSF, in Belgium.
