What We Do
We work to address three questions:
How does genetic variation give rise to phenotypic variation?
How can we use genetics to make agriculture more efficient, productive, and healthy globally
How can we reduce the impact of agriculture on the environment?
We do most of our research with maize because it is the world's largest production crop and it has perhaps the most fascinating and powerful genetics of any crop.
Our research falls into three general areas:
ANALYSIS AND BIOINFORMATIC TOOLS
Methods and tools for measuring, scoring, and identifying the functional variation in a species.
Molecular and phenotypic variation.
Functional studies aimed at finding the useful genetic variation for a range of traits.
