National Science Foundation funds systems biology study of crop drought responses
Date:9/30/2009

students in experimental biological sciences and computer science to explore topics closely tied to the project, such as climate change and sustainable environments. VBI's current NSF-funded cyberinfrastructure outreach project, "Cyberinfrastructure for Biological Researchers, Educators and Developers (CIBRED)," will help support the project's outreach efforts.

According to Oswald Crasta, project director of Virginia Bioinformatics Institute's Cyberinfrastructure Group, as well as co-principal investigator on the cereal drought stress response project and principal investigator of the CIBRED project, "This project provides an exciting opportunity to apply a systems approach for studying the impact of drought stress in cereals. We shall leverage the cyberinfrastructure and outreach resources for organization, analysis and dissemination of the data and the knowledge that will be generated through this project."

The project also includes international collaborations with CIMMYT (International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center) in Mexico and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in the Philippines.
