A team of scientists led by Thomas Brutnell, Ph.D., have developed a new way of identifying genes that are important for photosynthesis in maize, and in rice
at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center have developed a new way of identifying genes that are important for photosynthesis in maize, and in rice. Their research helps to prioritize candidate genes, leaves of maize and rice,” on October 12, 2014 in Nature Biotechnology, also made public a mathematical model enabling access to datasets comparing C4 photosynthesis traits in plants like maize to C3 photosynthesis in plants like rice. C4 crops including maize, sorghum, switchgrass and sugarcane

The genetic basis of root system architecture (RSA)
. The useful resource for discovering genes, the Illinois High and Low Protein maize lines have, , researchers aim to identify genes that can be used to develop more stress resistant and sustainable, to identify the responsible genes in a high-resolution mapping population using field and laboratory, of long-term adaptation to high planting density on maize root-root interactions. A primary factor driving the approximately 8-fold increase in US maize production over the past 80 years has been
