Technical Abstract: As the national research center for rice, USDA-ARS-Dale Bumpers National Rice Research Center (DBNRRC) offers unique genetic resources that are invaluable to sustain and improve U.S. rice production. Dr. Jinyoung Barnaby’s long-term research goal is to develop an integrated multi-omics platform (genetics, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and phenomics) to optimize genetic selection for producing cultivars with high grain quality and/or enhanced tolerance to stresses due to changes in the environment. In this talk, Dr. Barnaby’s ongoing research activities related to rice systems will be discussed: understanding the genetic variation in methane emissions and dissecting the rice rhizosphere soil microbiome affecting methane emissions using next generation sequencing; using high throughput genotyping and phenotyping (GWAS) to identify candidate genes affecting grain quality; examining the genotypic and phenotypic variation to identify the most adaptive rice lines to climate uncertainty using transcriptomics and metabolomics.
