Research

By creating tools to enable the automated analysis of data and by creating unique data storage solutions, we hope to enable other researchers to accomplish their research goals more efficiently and effectively.

We develop computational systems and tools that enable researchers to leverage plant genetics and genomics information to better understand basic biology and effect crop improvement. Group members are specifically interested in functional prediction for genes, predictive phenomics, and how gene and chromosome architecture regulate cellular processes. Although work by group members is not specifically limited to maize, it is by far our favorite model system.
