The Fellowship enables talented young scientists to pursue careers in this critically important field. 
2017 William H. Danforth Plant Science Scholar Recipient , Adam Bray, a second-year Ph.D. student at the University of Missouri, has been named the 2017 William H. Danforth Plant Science Scholar. He, whose research demonstrates great promise for advancing plant science. The fellowship was endowed, for scientific medical research and education. Bray’s passion for plant science began while growing up, for plant phenotyping at the University of Georgia, which led him to the lab of Christopher Topp, Ph.D.

quality change that is perceived by a class of plant photoreceptors, phytochrome and induces a host of adaptive changes in plant architecture allowing them to compete with neighboring plants, is the most important of all environmental cues that influence development throughout a plant’s life, avoidance response under high density plantings.

The genetic basis of root system architecture (RSA)
Understanding Root Growth and Physiology, What is the genetic basis of root system architecture (RSA)? ‘Root system architecture’ encompasses the spatial and temporal organization of roots in the growth medium, and thus greatly influences the resource capturing abilities of a plant. However, root architecture traits are notoriously difficult to measure due to the opacity of soil and a complex morphology that is environmentally sensitive. Christopher Topp’s laboratory at the Danforth Plant

Danforth Center Receives $3.4M to Improve Maize Architecture
 
 
Eveland, Ph.D., assistant member at the Danforth Plant Science Center to lead multi-institutional team that will work to develop a detailed knowledgebase of the complex gene networks that control plant structure in maize. Plant architecture, the number and arrangement of organs (e.g. branches, leaves, flowers) on a plant, is central to crop productivity and has been a primary target, to selecting for optimal architecture at increased planting densities. However, yield gains have plateaued
