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
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

Danforth Center Receives $3.4M to Improve Maize Architecture
 
 
Danforth Center to Lead Multi-Institutional Project to Improve Harvests of One of the Most Important Crops in Global Agriculture, Maize (corn) is a cereal crop with the highest dollar value in the U.S. and abroad. Maize yields have increased eight-fold in the past century due largely, . A greater understanding of the important agronomic traits in maize is necessary to develop more productive, structure in maize. Plant architecture, the number and arrangement of organs (e.g. branches, leaves
