Prof. Dr. Sami Said Adawy 


Professor Sami Adawy received his Ph.D. in molecular genetics and genome mapping from department of genetics, faculty of agriculture, Cairo University and gain post-doctoral from university of Wisconsin – Madison USA in Molecular Cytogenetic. 

At present, He is a Deputy Director at the Agriculture Genetic Engineering Research Institute (AGERI), Agricultural Research Center (ARC).  He managed and participated in many international and local funded research projects. Most of these projects involve Comparative Genomics and Genome Mapping for important economical crops. Some activates include Germplasm conservation, Genetic Characterization, Next Generation Sequencing, Molecular Marker and Bioinformatics Analysis. Some of these researches focusing on Comparative, identification, characterization and pathway annotations for many plant genomes to identify markers and its SNPs . Finally Structural Genomics in cotton targeting important Agronomic Traits to construction a genetic linkage map which was useful in detecting significant QTLs related to earliness and high productivity and promise to provide a better understanding of the cotton crop.

Prof. Sami is a reviewer for many national and international funding schemes like STDF. He participated in many scientific conferences and workshop published over 46 scientific articles and papers in local, international conferences and journals.

Research Activities and Research Projects:

  1. Bioinformatics analysis and comparative genomics for important cultivated crops , such as date palm , olive ,wheat and barley.
  2. Germplasm conservation, molecular characterization and fingerprinting for different egyptian strategic plants/crops.
  3. Construction of QTL maps for many economic crops/plants in Egypt, localize QTLs controlling economically important traits such biotic and abiotic resistant/tolerance, yield, flowering, gender-specific, etc.
  4. Development of initial marker assisted selection systems for important traits in many strategic crops.
  5. Structural genomics in different crops targeting important agronomic traits.
  6. Transfer the knowledge to younger scientists/scientists through participating in national and international training courses in molecular biology and biotechnology.
