Dr Patrick Hayes’ Biography

 Dr. Patrick Hayes is a Professor at Oregon State University. His research focuses on barley – in its many forms and uses. His current research interests include: development of winter habit barley varieties for malting and human nutrition; the many facets of winter hardiness; dissection of quantitative disease resistance; characterization and utilization of genetic diversity; stimulating local barley production; and barley quality assessment. He has generated a fair bit of “stuff” over the years: he has released 13 varieties/germplasms, developed 13 mapping populations/genetic stocks, distributed approximately 12 MT of germplasm, published 143 papers in refereed journals, and authored 12 book chapters. He has taught Introductory Plant Genetics to approximately 1,200 students. Most of them start the class with fear and loathing but most graduate with a keen appreciation for the complexity and power of genetics. He has served as Major Professor for 28 graduate students and four undergraduate thesis students.
