Create a novel method called Response to Artificial Selection Mapping to identify genes controlling plant adaptation to climate. Develop models to predict the influence of genes and geoclimatic factors limiting temperate adaptation. This will be done by combining DNA marker and sequence analysis and field evaluations of experimental corn populations across a range of environments.
