Research Project: Use of Genetic and Genomic Tools in Sorghum to Enhance Our Understanding of Developmental Processes Limiting Yield And/or Quality in Grasses

Location: Plant, Soil and Nutrition Research

Project Number: 1907-21000-041-02
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 13, 2009
End Date: Sep 12, 2014

Objective:
The objectives of this cooperative research project are to enhance our knowledge regarding grass development including, development in response to biotic and abiotic stress through the use of genetic and genomic tools in sorghum and other cereal grasses.

Approach:
In order to identify candidate genes, sample materials will be collected from different sorghum tissues and treatments and used for the generation and sequencing of expression libraries; and QPCR analysis.
