Medicago truncatula Plant

July 27, 2010
Scientists will study how Medicago truncatula, a small legume, and associated soil bacteria co-adapt to high salinity conditions, one of 20 new awards made by the National Science Foundation's Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) in 2008.

The awards range from $350,000 to $6.8 million to support research and tool development to further knowledge of genome structure and function. They will leverage sequence and functional genomics resources to increase understanding of gene function and interactions between genomes and the environment in economically important crop plants such as corn, soybean, wheat and rice.
