专家简介:Dr. Wenwei Xu received his B.S. degree in Agronomy from Agricultural University of Gansu Province in 1982 and his M.S. degree in Plant Breeding and Genetics from Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing, China in 1985. He received his Ph.D. degree in Genetics in 1992 from University of Missouri-Columbia. Dr. Xu joined the Plant and Soil Science faculty at Texas Tech University in March, 1998 as an Assistant Professor of Corn Breeding and Genetics. Dr. Xu also has a joint appointment at Texas A&M University System Texas AgriLife Research.

Dr. Wenwei Xu’s corn breeding and genetics program focuses on developing multiple stress tolerant corn germplasm for food, feed, and or silage by using conventional and molecular breeding methods. Major target traits include yield, drought and heat tolerance, corn earworm resistance, aflatoxin resistance, and mite resistance, and strong adaptation to the Southern environments. He is introgressing desirable genes from tropical and subtropical corn into temperate lines. His group has established a method for field evaluation of drought and heat tolerance, discovered root systems and hydraulic lift as a drought tolerance mechanism, officially released four inbred lines, developed a number of superior advanced lines, established strong collaboration with seed industry and close relationship with producers, and licensed germplasm to over ten seed companies.
