Oregon State University, Department of Botany and Plant Pathology
Sam Leiboff is an Assistant Professor at Oregon State’s Department of Botany and Plant Pathology (BPP). Sam uses quantitative genetics, transcriptomics, network biology, and molecular genetics to explore the way that maize (Zea mays subsp. mays L.) and sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) create inflorences and leaves. The Leiboff lab opened in May of 2020 and has many opportunities for new students, postdocs, and collaborators. The lab would love to hear from you!
Previously, Sam was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Plant Gene Expression Center / UC Berkeley. He was supervised by Prof. Sarah Hake, USDA / UC Berkeley and worked on understanding gene regulatory mechanisms that control plant morphological events. Before that, he recieved a PhD in Plant Biology at Cornell University’s School of Integrative Plant Science under the supervision of Prof. Michael J Scanlon.
