Research Project: Metabolomics of Seeds (Corn Grain) and Tomato

Location: Sustainable Agricultural Systems Laboratory

Project Number: 8042-21000-143-009-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 21, 2020
End Date: Sep 20, 2025

The objective of this project is to develop comprehensive datasets on the levels of primary and secondary metabolites in maize grain and tomato fruits and quantify minor metabolites.

Untargeted Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) based and targeted (UHPLC-Orbitrap MS, UHPLC/DAD/(+/-)HESI-MS/MS metabolomics approach including unbiased data processing will be applied to generate a comprehensive view of the relative levels of primary and secondary metabolites in grain crops and tomato fruits.
