Transformation and Genome Editing Lab

Research in the Transformation and Genome Editing Laboratory seeks to generate novel plant materials by genome editing, tissue culture and genetic transformation. The novel materials will be incorporated into breeding programs for cultivar development. The research will also generate new knowledge on gene functions in forage crops.
