​Speaker Biography:
Dr. Morota is an assistant professor of quantitative genetics at Virginia Tech. His work connects phenotypic variation with high-dimensional omic information, including single nucleotide polymorphisms, metabolites, DNA methylation, and hyperspectral images. In particular, he develops and applies new statistical methods for complex trait prediction and association studies. Given that phenotypic data collection is paramount in quantitative genetics, he integrates high-throughput phenotyping into his research program to collect a wide range of phenotypes.
