Laboratory) will use next generation sequencing technologies to identify the vast majority of genes in wheat and in three closely related progenitor genomes of wheat. Providing access to these raw data is expected to accelerate functional genomics in wheat.

  • Susan R. McCouch with co-PIs Jason Mezey (both at Cornell University), Georgia C. Eizenga, and Anna M. McClung (both at University of Arkansas/USDA Agricultural Research Service Dale Bumpers National Rice Research Center) and collaborators aim to gain a deeper understanding of the breadth and depth of genotypic and phenotypic variation in the rice gene pool and empower the rice community to efficiently translate their knowledge into practical applications in plant improvement. Specifically, they will explore transgressive variation where crosses between genetically different parents produce offspring that outperform the parents.

  • Dahlia Nielsen (North Carolina State University) with co-PIs Valerie Williamson (University of California, Davis), David Bird* (North Carolina State University), Mark Melton (Saint Augustine's College), and Jennifer Schaff (North Carolina State University) and collaborators will examine the relationship between plants and their nematode parasites. Nematodes cause yield losses of greater than 10% across all crops, reflecting an estimated $125 billion annual cost worldwide. In particular, the researchers will seek to answer the question of how the genetic makeup of the nematode influences the expression of genes in the host plant.

  • Seung Yon Rhee* (Carnegie Institution for Science) will develop an automated pipeline to reconstruct plant metabolic pathways from genomic data. This pipeline will be used to create pathway databases for 18 agriculturally and industrially important plants. The project will also engage community college interns and collaborate with a high school teacher to produce a teaching module on plant metabolism tied to national a
