Adapting sorghum for the needs of smallholder families: Clara develops global genomics-enabled breeding strategy for Vitamin-A biofortification in BMC Plant Biology
New review on genotype–environment associations to reveal the molecular basis of environmental adaptation in Plant Cell
Our research & development program
Our mission is to understand and improve crop adaptation. We use quantitative genomics to dissect and select adaptive traits. We use a goal-directed hypothesis-driven approach integrating evolutionary genetics, crop modeling, and molecular breeding.
We focus on the most important cereal crops for the world's drylands — sorghum, pearl millet, and wheat. Sorghum is a global food, feed, and biomass crop — a critical climate-resilient crop of drylands worldwide, from smallholder plots in sub-Saharan Africa and Haiti to commercial farms in the U.S. Great Plains and beyond.
