Peter Beerbower successfully defended his genomics and bioinformatics M.S. thesis on December 7, 2020. His thesis is titled Mapping Ur-6, a Bean Rust Resistance Gene in Common Bean. He is advised by Dr. Phil McClean, professor and director of the genomics and bioinformatics program.

To complete his research, Beerbower successfully mapped the location of the bean rust resistance gene Ur-6 within the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) genome.

Before beginning his studies at North Dakota State University, Beerbower graduated from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, with a major in biology and minor in chemistry. He is originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana. He plans to continue studying at NDSU to complete a Ph.D. in genetics and bioinformatics with Dr. Xiwen Cai.

His graduate committee includes McClean, Dr. Justin Faris, Dr. Juan Osorno, and Dr. Nonoy Bandillo.
