Ask A Plant Scientist: Ivan Baxter, Ph.D.
Ivan Baxter, Ph.D., USDA-ARS Research Scientist joined the Danforth Center in 2009 as an Assistant Member and Principal Investigator. Ivan’s research uses high-throughput elemental profiling to measure the elemental composition of plant tissues.The data is used to understand how the interactions of elements, genes, and the environment determine the elemental composition of plants and allow plants to adapt to different environments.
