Jim Holland is the project leader for the corn breeding and genetics program. He obtained a B.A. in Biology from Johns Hopkins University, an M.S. in Plant Breeding and Plant Genetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a Ph.D. in Crop Science at NC State University.
Jason Brewer is a USDA Biological Science Technician in charge of the field breeding and testing and seed stock maintenance.
Josie Bloom is a USDA Biological Science Technician who manages the genotyping laboratory.
Matthew Smith received his B.A. in Architecture from Clemson University, served in the Air Force as a pilot, and completed his M.S. at NCSU, working on evaluating genotypic variation for response to a growth regulator, and screening diverse maize germplasm for sources of low protein content for metabolic patients. His PhD research focuses on breeding heirloom corns and low protein specialty corns.
Anna Rogers received dual B.S. degrees in Genetics and Statistics at Iowa State University. She is working on her Ph.D. in Genetics at NCSU, focusing on environment-specific genomic prediction and transcriptional responses to environmental factors in maize.
Ryan Sartor received his B.S. from Michigan State University and his Ph.D. degree in Genetics from University of California-San Diego. He was awarded a National Science Foundation post-doctoral researcher award to study prediction of maize hybrid phenotypes using transcriptome data.
