Danforth Center Receives $3.4M to Improve Maize Architecture
of maize. The project led by Andrea Eveland, Ph.D., assistant member at the Danforth Center, manipulating plant architecture traits in maize that enhance yield potential. The collaborative project, and fuel demands of a growing population. Maize is a cereal crop with the highest dollar value in the U.S. and abroad. Maize yields have increased eight-fold in the past century due largely, -bearing panicle improves seed set, grain fill and harvestability. In maize, genes that control leaf
What Roots Can Tell Us About Sustainable Agriculture

Guest blogger, Hallie Thompson discusses how more efficient root systems can impact soil health and the sustainability of crops. 
background to study the anatomical, morphological and physiological responses of maize roots to drought, on the response of maize to water deficits in both the lab and field settings. As maize develops, observe the nodal (adult) root system of maize growing under water deficit conditions using a rainout, which can be utilized in producing more drought-resilient lines of corn. Ideally, maize will be able, in context, and there is no simple answer. Maize from BREC with the second whorl of nodal roots
(Biotechniques) Plants in the CRISPR

Blake Meyers of the Danforth Center has been using CRISPR to introduce single-nucleotide changes in plant microRNAs in Arabidopsis. 
(Biotechniques) Plants in the CRISPR, Blake Meyers of the Danforth Center has been using CRISPR to introduce single-nucleotide changes in plant microRNAs in Arabidopsis. “It gives us a very powerful tool to make very small changes, kind of what we might think of as subtle changes that can have dramatic effects on processing,” he says. He’s also been collaborating on a project with Yang where they’ve been looking at the impact of cutting out 70-kilobase chunks of the maize genome, which they can
