MSU Plant Breeding Inside Out

(Video on plant breeding begins at approximately 1:33) MSU doctoral student Kelvin Kamfwa, whose research focuses on the genetics of biological nitrogen fixation in dry beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), presents a “day in the life” explanation on his lab work on plant breeding and genetics. Kamfwa’s research objective is to map the quantitative trait loci for biological nitrogen fixation in Phaseolus vulgaris. The expected impact of this research is the identification of genetic markers that would enhance selection efficiency for biological nitrogen fixation (BNF), which is a complex trait and difficult to select for phenotypically. Kamfwa works with Dr. James Kelly, University Distinguished Professor, Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences.
