Ahmed ElFatih Amin El Doliefy presented his Plant Sciences Ph.D. research on May 1, 2015 during a seminar titled Molecular Mapping of Fusarium head blight (FHB) Resistance in Two Adapted Spring Wheat Cultivars.

El Doliefy’s research used two wheat populations to generate two genetic maps and identify the genomic regions on each chromosomal map that had association with FHB disease resistance. Wheat heads from outdoor environments in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota were tested along with wheat heads from NDSU’s greenhouse environment.

After receiving his B.S. and M.S. in Genetics in Cairo, Egypt, El Doliefy received the Borlaug Fellowship in 2008 and came to NDSU from Egypt as a visiting scientist. Shortly thereafter he began Ph.D. work with the Plant Sciences wheat breeding group. In the future, El Doliefy will look to procure employment as a post-doctoral researcher.

Ahmed ElFatih Amin El Doliefy’s graduate committee consisted of Dr. Elias Elias, Dr. Phillip McClean, and Dr. Shaobin Zhong. His adviser was Dr. Mohamed Mergoum.
