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

Dr. Thomas Brutnell expands on his continued research into the genetic makeup of crop plants such as maize. In this enlightening interview, he illuminates how a more complete picture could have an impact on not only genetic engineering but, ultimately, the future of agriculture.

continued research into the genetic makeup of crop plants such as maize. In this enlightening, into the genetics of maize? Our goal is to use the dissociation transposon (Ds) as a tool to clone and characterise genes in the maize genome. This is not restricted to any biological question but has, , or understand the genes and networks which dictate the differentiation of C4. Why is maize so valuable on both US and international markets? In the US, maize is used primarily as a commodity
