CORN INSECTS AND CROP GENETICS RESEARCH UNIT
819 Wallace Road, 1012 Crop Genome Informatics Lab
AmesIA50011-4014

Mission:
The mission of the Unit is 1) develop strategies for genetic and genomic improvements of adapted and exotic corn germplasm; 2) develop basic understandings of the soybean genome via genetic and cytogenetic analyses; 3) elucidate molecular mechanisms of interactions between cereal pathogens and their hosts; 4) develop environmentally sound strategies to manage pest insects of corn; 5) advance the science of bioinformatics to better understand the complex gene interactions within barley, corn, and soybean, and 6) managing model organism databases and providing community support for the crops corn and soybean.
