ASPB members lead new plant genome research program awards
Date:11/5/2010

g* with co-PIs Michael J. Sanderson (both at University of Arizona), Manyuan Long (University of Chicago), Carlos A. Machado (University of Maryland College Park), Jianxin Ma,* and Scott A. Jackson* (both at Purdue University) and colleagues will generate a set of genomics resources for the genus Oryza, which contains the world's most important food crop: rice. These resources will allow cross-species analyses with other related genomic sequences and both help improve cultivated rice and address fundamental questions in evolutionary and comparative genomics. The project will also foster science education, including a "Plant Science Family Night" program to engage elementary students and families in thinking about plants and role of plant science in ensuring a safe, sustainable, and secure food supply.

  • Roger P. Wise* with co-PIs Julie A. Dickerson,* Adam J. Bogdanove, Daniel S. Nettleton, and Adah Leshem-Ackerman (all at Iowa State University) and collaborator Pietro Spanu (Imperial College, London) will address fundamental questions about the susceptibility and resistance of host plants to infection focusing on the barleypowdery mildew system and comparisons in maize and rice. They will seek to identify new genes in the regulation of plant innate immunity and plant targets that promote or suppress defenses. The project will also incorporate classroom educational materials, international research exchanges, and training and mentoring of students.

  • Daniel Zilberman, co-PI Robert Fischer* (both at the University of California, Berkeley), and collaborators will explore the role of genomic imprinting on the development of endosperm, which serves as the major source of food for humans and livestock, using rice as a model system. This research on epigenetic changes to DNA sequences, such as the addition of methyl groups, modifications to DNA-associated proteins, and small RNA molecules, may lead to new technologies that will increase cr
