Barley Genome Investigations

posted November 8, 2012

MSI Principal Investigator Gary Muehlbauer (Agronomy and Plant Genetics and Head, Plant Biology) is part of a large international team of researchers that has produced a “draft” of the barley genome. This work has been published in the prestigious journal Nature.

An article by the University News Service describes Professor Muehlbauer’s research. He and his group use the Computational Genetics Lab for their investigations of barley and other crops, including wheat, soybean, and maize.
