Genomics Analysis of Barley, Wheat, and Corn

These researchers use resources at the CGL to study aspects of the barley, wheat, and maize genomes. One area of interest is the gene expression profiles of barley and wheat during infection with Fusarium graminearum. The Muehlbauer lab is also examining the gene expression profiles in four low branching barley mutants. Other projects include: examining the gene expression profiles in barley during malting; conducting QTL analysis in barley and maize; and examining gene expression in maize shoot apical meristems.
