The genome of the model organism and agricultural pest uncovered a high level of macrosynteny and decreased levels of microsynteny.

Interviews with some of the leading academics in the field of crop research revealed a preference for NGS and genotyping-by-sequencing, in particular.

The funding will also support a partnership developing agricultural educational and training opportunities for students in genomics and bioinformatics.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Using a synthetic biology-based approach, researchers from the J. Craig Venter Institute and Kansas State University found that a bat influenza virus uncovered in 2009 poses little-to-no pandemic threat to humans.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An international team of researchers looking into genomic patterns in wheat has developed a map of genetic variability and unearthed alleles that were subject to selection, according

With the help of a US Department of Agriculture grant, a Kansas State University doctoral student is using RNAi to combat an insect that acts as a vector for a plant disease responsible for an estimated $1 billion in crop damage worldwide each year.

A $780,000 Department of Education Grant supports a program for interdisciplinary approaches to changing environments.
