Welcome to the lab website of Geoff Morris (Associate Professor in Agronomy)


Our research

  • We're focused on adaptation genomics in sorghum – a global food, feed, and biomass crop – and its cultivated and wild relatives (panicoid grasses). 
  • Sorghum is an important crop of drylands worldwide, from commercial farms in the U.S. Great Plains to smallholder plots in Sub-Saharan Africa. With climate change bringing higher temperatures and more erratic rainfall to much of the world, the importance of climate-resilient crops to food security and rural economies will only increase.

Research goals

  • To uncover the genomic basis of environmental adaptation
  • To accelerate crop improvement for adaptive traits using genomics
