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

nd state biology education standards.

  • Edgar P. Spalding* with co-PIs Nicola J. Ferrier (both at the University of WisconsinMadison), A. Mark Settles* (University of Florida), Tessa L. Durham Brooks* (Doane College), and Nathan D. Miller* (University of Wisconsin) and collaborators will integrate engineering and computer science methodologies into biology to improve the ability to detect and quantify plant phenotypes. This will help identify examples when one phenotype can predict another. The project will emphasize both hardware and software development and will utilize cyber-enabled virtual organization to span geographic distances.

  • Nathan M. Springer* (University of Minnesota) and co-PI Matthew W. Vaughn* (University of Texas at Austin) will study the prevalence, heritability, and potential consequences of epigenetic variationheritable genetic differences that are not due to changes in DNA sequencesin maize. This phenomenon is not well understood but can lead to large changes in phenotype, which is important for plant breeding and crop improvement.

  • Gary Stacey* with co-PIs Dong Xu and Jianlin Cheng (all at the University of Missouri) and collaborators will study the response of a single plant cell type, the soybean root hair, to infection by a beneficial nitrogen fixing bacterium as a model for exploring systems biology. The project will seek to understand the regulatory networks that control the infection process leading to a successful symbiotic relationship. The study will also contribute to understanding of plant cellular function; root development; and nitrogen fixation, which has great agronomic and ecological importance.

  • C. Eduardo Vallejos* with co-PIs James W. Jones, Kenneth J. Boote,* Melanie J. Correll (all at the University of Florida), Arthur Berg (Penn State Hershey College of Medicine), Rongling Wu (Pennsylvania State University), and Juan Osorno (North Dakota State University) and collaborato
