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

>Robert B. Goldberg* (University of California, Los Angeles) with co-PIs John J. Harada* (University of California, Davis) and Matteo Pellegrini (University of California, Los Angeles) will characterize all aspects of soybean seed development, including the interaction of different genetic components that lead to mature soybean seeds, which are a major source of protein feed and vegetable oil. The project will engage undergraduates in science and humanities from three institutions, including a Historically Black university.

  • Michael G. Hahn* with co-PIs William S. York, Geert-Jan Boons, Malcolm A. O'Neill, Harry Gilbert, and Christopher S. King (all at the University of Georgia) will generate a set of molecular probes directed against plant cell wall carbohydrate structures that will enable researchers to expand their studies of plant cell wall polysaccharides in living plants. They will also hold a week-long course on microscopic methods for cell wall research each summer and engage students in summer research.

  • Adrian D. Hegeman* with co-PI Jerry D. Cohen* (both at the University of Minnesota) and collaborators will seek to develop techniques to measure the dynamics of the metabolome, the set of small molecules that result from metabolism. Although the work will focus on rice and tomato, the methods and procedures are expected to be applicable to many plant species. The project will also organize a summer workshop in metabolomics and engage primarily undergraduate institutions as well as research-intensive universities.

  • David Jackson* (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) with co-PIs Anne Sylvester (University of Wyoming) and Agnes Chan (J. Craig Venter Institute) will aim to generate genetic tools in maize that can be used to enable expression of any gene in a number of specific chosen tissues or cell types, providing a means to understand gene function during development. The project will also organize an annual genetics work
