Texas A&M AgriLife Launches cross-discipline crop gene editing, transformation, and genomics technology

Genome editing aims to change something in a plant’s form or function, or, in other words, its phenotype, says Dr. Bill McCutchen, executive associate director of AgriLife Research. Yet the relationship between phenotypic traits and genetic sequences is far from well-understood, he says, adding that although genome editing shows tremendous promise, several challenges must be Read more about Texas A&M AgriLife Launches cross-discipline crop gene editing, transformation, and genomics technology[…]

Another Green Revolution is Coming

Advances in genomics, automation, phenomics, and data management are allowing scientists to identify, modify, and express influential genes for health sciences, agriculture, and veterinary medicine; researchers all over the world are building an unprecedented view of gene content and genome organization. Yet we have much left to learn of the relationship between variation in organisms’ Read more about Another Green Revolution is Coming[…]
