Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Botany

His primary areas of investigation include Quantitative trait locus, Genetics, Genetic architecture, Nested association mapping and Genetic variation. Torbert Rocheford combines subjects such as Low protein, Kernel, Phenotypic trait, Chromosome and Restriction fragment length polymorphism with his study of Quantitative trait locus. His work deals with themes such as Anthesis and Carotenoid, which intersect with Genetics.

His work carried out in the field of Genetic architecture brings together such families of science as Epistasis and Domestication. In his study, Outcrossing and Poaceae is strongly linked to Selfing, which falls under the umbrella field of Epistasis. His Genetic variation research incorporates elements of Genetic variability, Selection and Plant breeding.

His most cited work include:

  • The Genetic Architecture of Maize Flowering Time (1062 citations)
  • The Genetic Architecture of Maize Flowering Time (1062 citations)
  • Molecular Markers Associated with Maize Kernel Oil Concentration in an Illinois High Protein × Illinois Low Protein Cross (1036 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Genetics, Quantitative trait locus, Carotenoid, Botany and Genetic variation are his primary areas of study. He combines Genetics and Genome-wide association study in his studies. Torbert Rocheford studies Quantitative trait locus, namely Genetic architecture.

His work on Zeaxanthin and Xanthophyll as part of his general Carotenoid study is frequently connected to Biofortification, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Genetic variation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Evolutionary biology and Genome. The Nested association mapping study which covers Epistasis that intersects with Pleiotropy and Selfing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (54.72%)
  • Quantitative trait locus (50.94%)
  • Carotenoid (27.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Orange (11.32%)
  • Genetics (54.72%)
  • Carotenoid (27.36%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Torbert Rocheford spends much of his time researching Orange, Genetics, Carotenoid, Genetic variation and Gene–environment interaction. His research in Orange intersects with topics in Provitamin a, Litter, Animal science and Xanthophyll. His research links Vitamin E with Genetics.

His Genetic variation study incorporates themes from Quantitative trait locus, Vitamin, Crop diversity and Locus. In his research, Pleiotropy and Explained variation is intimately related to Nested association mapping, which falls under the overarching field of Quantitative trait locus. His study on Gene–environment interaction also encompasses disciplines like

  • Main effect together with Yield, Covariate, Selection and Dominance,
  • Predictive modelling which connect with Genetic architecture.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Maize Genomes to Fields: 2014 and 2015 field season genotype, phenotype, environment, and inbred ear image datasets (16 citations)
  • Carotenoid Stability during Dry Milling, Storage, and Extrusion Processing of Biofortified Maize Genotypes. (14 citations)
  • Dominance Effects and Functional Enrichments Improve Prediction of Agronomic Traits in Hybrid Maize. (10 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Botany

His primary scientific interests are in Orange, Carotenoid, Provitamin a, Weather station and Outlier. Torbert Rocheford integrates Orange and Genome-wide association study in his research. Torbert Rocheford has researched Carotenoid in several fields, including Genetics, Genotype and Postharvest.

His studies deal with areas such as Food processing, Carotenoid degradation and Horticulture as well as Provitamin a. Among his Weather station studies, there is a synthesis of other scientific areas such as Raw data, Data mining, Cartography, Context and README. The Outlier study combines topics in areas such as Genome and Field.
