Project Title: 
Genomics of Barley, Wheat, Maize, and Soybean

These researchers use resources at MSI to study aspects of the barley, wheat, soybean, and maize genomes, the barley/wheat-Fusarium graminaerum interaction, barley meristems, and soybean shoot architecture . The group is involved in several projects:

  • Examining the gene expression profiles of barley and wheat during infection with Fusarium graminearum.
  • Using laser capture microdissection RNA-seq to examine the gene expression patterns in the barley shoot apical and axillary meristems.
  • Using sequence data from mapping populations in wheat and its relatives to assemble and map these genomes.
  • Identifying genes that control shoot and reproductive architecture in barley.
  • Using sequence data to identify genes controlling shoot and root architecture.
