A Postdoc Explores Plant Hormones
Christine Shyu is a postdoctoral associate in Dr. Tom Brutnell’s lab, Enterprise Rent-A-Car Institute for Renewable Fuels at the Danforth Center. Christine’s research focuses on how plants hormones affect the plants response to developmental and environmental cues and how they determine if and how plants should grow or defend.

(New Scientist) Cassava packs a protein punch with bean genes
 by Andy Coghlan A DEADLY poison could save the lives of millions of African children, thanks to the discovery that cassava can be duped into turning about half of the cyanide it makes into extra protein. Although cassava is a major source of carbo ...

Poster Abstract
large water savings. Time course experiments performed on maize mutants revealed, . The vast natural genetic variation within maize is also being leveraged to identify leaf traits, exists between maize lines for traits related to carbon fixation. Furthermore, these phenotypes, species. These findings will facilitate the optimization of maize and other crops that can better
