My main area of research is providing functional annotations to support modeling of functional genomics data sets for non-model organisms. This includes aspect of biocuration, ontology design, gene identification and functional prediction and functional genomics. I am also interested in integrating different date types and the visualization of these results in a way that enables researchers to turn genomics data into practical knowledge that can be applied to agricultural systems.
