Technical Abstract: Translational genetics research at the Plant Stress & Germplasm Development Research Unit, Cropping Systems Research Laboratory, USDA, ARS at Lubbock TX, focuses on state-of-the-art genetic approaches, solutions, and related technologies for advancement of climate smart and sustainable sorghums. Application of DNA marker assisted technology for gene identification and actual causal nucleotide variation were successfully accomplished for various agronomic traits using forward and reverse genetics. Significant climate smart and sustainable genetic products were developed and are ready for delivery to US agricultural stakeholders and worldwide application. Sustained and precise creation/development of novel climate smart sustainable sorghum lines via translational genetics/genomics and related technologies elevates the US sorghum industry in terms of competitiveness, profitability, and sustainability for now and decades to come.
