of sorghum and combine that information with phenotype data to look at the physical makeup
Understanding Root Growth and Physiology
The genetic basis of root system architecture (RSA)
Science Center uses a semi-automated optical tomography (OPT) system to phenotype crop root systems, . In the long-term, the Topp laboratory aims to understand how genotype directs phenotype for agriculturally
(International Innovation- North America) Adaptive Agriculture
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.

genetics – using the phenotype as our guide – we use the Ds as a molecular tag to isolate sequences, ). We can then examine the phenotype of the plants (how they look) and associate the gene sequence we have isolated with that phenotype. Reverse genetics, on the other hand, uses gene sequences
