Discover how the Gehan laboratory is working to understand plants’ response to severe temperatures, pests and pathogens.
to stressors like viruses, pathogens, nutrient deficit, drought and temperature stress. These signatures of stress could then be used to develop screens at a lower cost,” said Gehan. STRESS TOLERANT CROPS, research focuses on how to improve plant response to temperature stress in important crops. She recognized that having to use new sets of plants for each stress tolerance test significantly slows the pace, quinoa, which provides a complete amino acid profile and is also tolerant to many stresses like
Announcing New Research to Address Global Food Security and the Sustainability of Coastal Golf Courses
The Danforth Center’s mission to improve the human condition through plant science directly translates to addressing the food security and sustainability challenges in our world.
that are already somewhat salt-tolerant such as seashore paspalum. Using genome mapping, scientists will be able to figure out the genetic puzzle piece that makes it salt tolerant. Discoveries, , such as maize or wheat. Grain sorghum is very resilient to drought and heat stress. Studying the genetic diversity in sorghum makes it a promising system for identifying stress-resistance mechanisms
New study identifies promising agricultural tools for feeding the world’s hungry
In its new report, Food Security in a World of Growing Natural Resource Scarcity: The Role of Agricultural Technologies, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) examines how 11 agricultural practices and technologies could help farmers around the world improve the sustainability of agriculture. 
percent, but irrigation increased the yields by another 21 percent. Heat-tolerant varieties, -use efficiency, heat-tolerant crops, and crop protection from weeds, insects, and diseases, environments, respond to stress and produce energy-rich molecules. The Center’s programs look

The Eveland lab is also interested in how and to what extent developmental networks intersect abiotic stress response networks. Drought stress has devastating impacts on grain yield worldwide, including in the U.S., stress at the transcriptional level, and how natural variation affects drought tolerance, as part
