Leif Andersson and Jorge Dubcovsky have received the 2014 Wolf Prize in Agriculture.
The Wolf Foundation, an Israeli nonprofit, awards prizes to scientists and artists in the subjects of agriculture, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, physics, and arts each year. The prize consists of a certificate and $100,000.
Andersson, a professor at Uppsala University in Sweden, was awarded the prize for his work in "genomic and marker assisted selection as a means to identify superior breeding stock." In 2012, BioArray News met with and interviewed Andersson about his use of SNP arrays and next-generation sequencing to study race horses.
