Awards Made for Plant Genome Research

July 26, 2010
The National Science Foundation made 19 new awards totaling $58.7 million in the eighth year of its Plant Genome Research program. The awards will support genomics research in major crop plants such as soybean and also in trees including the loblolly pine and poplar.

The two to five- year awards, ranging from $622,000 to $7.7 million, fund research and tools to reveal information in the genomes of economically important crop plants such as wheat and soybeans as well as increase understanding of the genetic control of plant processes including disease resistance, flavor development, seed growth and wood formation.
