Thomas Mitchell-Olds, professor at the Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy at Duke University in the U.S., was the guest during the Young Researchers Lunch for April.

Dr. Mitchell-Olds discussed his approach to data analysis, in which he considers multiple traits together in order to see genetic differences better. He also gave the young scientists on the table tips for applying in US universities.

April participants were Margaret Anne Pelayo, Corinne Mira Marfori-Nazarea, Alex Grondin, Swe Zin Myint Thein, Dennis Nicuh Lozada, and Aye Min.

The Young Researchers Lunch is a monthly meeting of IRRI scientists who are in the early stages of their career. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for discussions with senior scientists on a range of topics on science and career paths.
