shop for Native American students and generate three-dimensional interactive animations of a maize cell and the growing plant.

  • Robert K. Jansen (University of Texas at Austin) with co-PIs Jeffrey P. Mower (University of Nebraska) and Jeffrey D. Palmer* (Indiana University) will examine the basis for the rapid evolution of the mitochondrial and plastid genomes in the plant family containing Geranium to understand how the multiple genomes within a single plant cell influence one another and co-evolve over time. The project will engage high school students as summer research interns and develop teacher training modules.

  • Harry J. Klee* (University of Florida) with co-PIs James J. Giovannoni* (Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research/USDA Agricultural Research Service Robert W. Holley Research Center for Agriculture and Health), Denise Tieman (University of Florida), and Zhangjun Fei* (Boyce Thompson/USDA-ARS) and collaborators will seek to identify networks regulating the synthesis of flavor and nutrition compounds in the Solanaceae, which includes tomato. The team will focus on the pathways for the synthesis of folic acid, carotenoids, and a set of flavor and fragrance compounds.

  • June M. Kwak* (University of Maryland College Park) with co-PIs Sarah M. Assmann* (Pennsylvania State University), Joel S. Bader (Johns Hopkins University), John K. McKay (Colorado State University), Scott C. Peck* (University of Missouri), and Julian I. Schroeder* (University of California, San Diego) will seek to develop varieties of canola, an important oilseed crop, that are more drought tolerant by understanding genes associated with drought response in the guard cell that controls microscopic pores on plant leaves. The project will also engage undergraduate students in a program that will educate them about communicating research findings to the general public.
