ASPB members lead new plant genome research program awards

rs will generate a crop model capable of using the genetic makeup of a plant to predict the phenotype under a range of environments. The resultant model will have a wide range of applications in plant biology, including genetics, functional genomics, ecology, and plant breeding. The project will engage undergraduate students and high school teachers as summer interns and organize hands-on workshops in these technologies.

  • Doris Wagner* (University of Pennsylvania) with co-PIs Craig S. Pikaard* (Indiana University) and Robert Martienssen (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) will establish a Research Collaborative Network (RCN) to organize the U.S. and international plant epigenomics communities to prioritize goals and research needs. The RCN will identify the challenges that limit progress in the field; promote data sharing; and develop community standards for data collection, deposition, and dissemination. Results will include the formation of an Epigenomics of Plants International Consortium and a document outlining recommendations for future funding priorities.

  • Cynthia Weinig (University of Wyoming) with co-PIs C. Robertson McClung* (Dartmouth College), Stephen M. Welch, Sanjoy Das (both at Kansas State University), and Julin N. Maloof* (University of California, Davis) will examine plant responses to vegetation density, commonly referred to as "shade avoidance," which greatly affects yield in crop species. The team will use both genetic and environmental data with model plants to develop computational approaches for reconstructing gene networks that regulate density responses and for predicting traits such as height and flowering time from complex genotypes. They will also develop modules to educate teachers on evolutionary theory and molecular genetics, provide seed kits for inquiry-based student exercises, and hold an annual teacher workshop that will ultimately reach the majority of biology teachers in Wyoming.
