The Co-PI (Xin) has created a pedigreed collection of 3,400 sorhgum mutant lines displaying many stress response and developmental phonotypes. The PI, Noami Shental, from the Computer Science Department, the Open University of Israel developed the compressed mutations. Pools of genomic DNA from the sorghum mutation library will be sequenced and analyzed with compressed sensing strategy to identify known mutations and new mutations in genes involved in drought tolerance.
