Pioneering study makes important advances in understanding how plants respond to water stress
Drought Response in Global Crops may be as Complex as Day and Night, ST. LOUIS, MO, August 29, 2017 – Researchers have identified a set of genes that help control early drought response in a popular, changes in gene networks in a crop plant and physiological changes associated with drought stress,” said, . The research, appearing in the journal eLife, focuses on the plant’s response early in the drought, respond to water stress in order to create more drought-resilient crops. “Even before a plant shows

(KSDK/Channel 5 News-NBC) Drought resistant crop study, Drought resistant crops will be the focus of a new study being conducted by researchers at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. The U.S. Department of Energy awarded a five-year, $12.1 million grant to the Danforth Center, viridis, as a sustainable fuel source. Drought is a major stress on crops and limits potential yields, in low soil moisture and severe drought conditions, according to the Danforth Center. Low yields
(AGWeb) How Resurrection Plants Could Lead to More Drought-Tolerant Crops
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/in-the-news/in-the-news-item/(agweb)-how-resurrection-plants-could-lead-to-more-drought-tolerant-crops
Recent genome sequencing of Oropetium grass has given researchers a blueprint in distinguishing genes related to phenomenal plant resilience. 
(AGWeb) How Resurrection Plants Could Lead to More Drought-Tolerant Crops, A Lazarus heart beats inside an obscure grass. Rip it from the soil; throw it on the counter; walk away; let it dry out, of resurrection plants like Oropetium hold tremendous promise toward engineering stronger drought, and bolts of survival and prosperity. Oropetium has amazing drought-tolerance and the genetic basis, to withstand drought,” says Todd Mockler, associate member, Danforth Center. “We’ll do

Researchers in the state are unleashing the latest technology — everything from big data to drones — to study plants and improve yields for Missouri’s multi-billion-dollar agricultural industry amid an uncertain climate.
(St. Louis Business Journal) Data farming: Researchers using drones, data to beat drought, ’s study will look down to the genome-level at drought tolerance and water-efficiency in corn, of the main goals of the study is to understand how roots contribute to drought tolerance and identify which, , floral structures and other features respond to stress from drought. Drought is one of the biggest scourges to crop yields. In 2012, which saw the worst U.S. drought in decades, Missouri planted

Analysis results in greater understanding of important biological traits related to crop drought tolerance
Scientists Sequence Drought Tolerant Grass Using Single Molecule Real-Time Sequencing, Analysis results in greater understanding of important biological traits related to crop drought tolerance, of Oropetium thomaeum, a grass species that can regrow after exposed to extreme drought when water, program to help scientists determine the biological mechanisms behind its extreme drought tolerance, . Having the genomic data of a highly drought tolerant species is really powerful in facilitating crop

The Danforth Plant Science Center announced Wednesday a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Departments of Energy and Agriculture to map the genes that control drought response in grasses used as biofuels.
(St. Louis Post-Dispatch) Federal grant to help Danforth scientists find drought genes, The Danforth Plant Science Center announced Wednesday a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Departments of Energy and Agriculture to map the genes that control drought response in grasses used as biofuels. Todd Mockler, the lead scientist on the project, said the roughly three-year undertaking will monitor the physiological and genetic responses to drought in a grass known as Brachypodium.

Recent genome sequencing of Oropetium grass has given researchers a blueprint in distinguishing genes related to phenomenal plant resilience.
How Greater Understanding of Resurrection Plants Could Lead to More Drought-Tolerant Crops, The genome of a tiny resurrection plant has been sequenced using solely the long-read, single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing technology developed by PacBio, and provides the basis for understanding extreme desiccation tolerance. The level of genome contiguity is comparable to that obtained by far, engineering stronger drought-tolerance in crops, and the effects soon could reach farmland
