National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) reports:

University of California, Davis wheat geneticist Jorge Dubcovsky will be honored with the 2014 Wolf Prize in Agriculture for his work in wheat genomics.

The prize is awarded annually by the Wolf Foundation to outstanding scientists and artists in the fields of agriculture, chemistry, physics, mathematics, medicine and the arts.

In a statement by the Wolf foundation, Dubcovsky was selected for the award for his work "to dramatically improving the nutritional value of wheat, and the impact of the discoveries was increased when they were made available to the scientific community."

During his tenure at University of California, Davis, Dubcovsky has conducted research on wheat genomics and deploying those genes in wheat cultivars. His improved wheat varieties help with disease resistance, protein content, flowering and frost tolerance.
