that are important for weediness and assessment of the impact of herbicide resistant cultivars on weed emergence will help in the development of effective weed control strategies. The project leaders will also train a teaching summer intern to develop a red rice classroom activity and mentor teachers in biotechnology research.

  • Z. Jeffrey Chen* (University of Texas at Austin) with co-PIs Foo Cheung (J. Craig Venter Institute), Candace H. Haigler* (North Carolina State University), Brian E. Scheffler (Alcorn State University), and David M. Stelly (Texas A&M University) will identify cotton genes and regulatory elements that are important to the development of cotton fibers and the synthesis of the cellulose that makes up these fibers. Improving the yield of cotton fibers would provide a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based synthetic fibers. The project team will also develop resources for sequencing the genomes of the two major cultivated species, Upland and Pima cotton, and expand a scalable outreach program in the Mississippi Delta in the area of plant genomics and bioinformatics for middle and high school teachers and for graduate students in bioinformatics and biotechnology at two Historically Black institutions.

  • Gloria M. Coruzzi* (New York University) with co-PIs Robert DeSalle (American Museum of Natural History), W. Richard McCombie (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory), Dennis E. Shasha (New York University), and Dennis W. Stevenson (New York Botanical Garden) and other personnel will use diversity of plant genomes to discover new genes involved in the development of seeds. It is expected that the data and software resources generated under this project, such as a phylogenomic tree of 150 plant species, will enable others to identify genes associated with any traits of interest or economic value.
