Dr. Ibrahim Elbasyoni is a Research Scientist in the Plant Science department, Center of Desert Agriculture (CDA), King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). He received his PhD in 2012 from the agronomy and horticulture department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). Since 2012, he has been actively involved in research related to various topics in plant breeding and genetics, including using and exploring different plant genetic resources to solve current agricultural problems, working with plant physiologists and pathologists to translocate findings from basic sciences such as genetics, biology, remote sensing, statistics, and bioinformatics into approaches that can be used to develop genotypes that can withstand biotic and abiotic stresses, applying several essential basic technologies such as genome sequencing, gene expression profiling, canopy spectral reflectance to develop genotypes of interest. He was awarded many research grants from Egypt, Kuwait, France, and the USA to support his research. He has over 30 publications, published in reputable peer-reviewed journals.
Developing input-use efficient cultivars for sustainable and resilient agriculture production by integrating marker-assisted plant breeding, functional phenomics, and genomics.
