Project Title: 
De Novo Assembly and Analysis of Plant Genome

This group is performing de novo assembly and analysis of plant genomes and RNA-seq data including, but not limited, to Thlaspi arvense and Camelina sativa. This research is performed largely within the framework of the Forever Green Initiative, whose goal is to develop new crops that can provide a year-long cover on the landscape.
