In the Maize Genetics and Genomics group, we employ the full range of genetics and genomics technologies to better understand the processes where by a wild grass, restricted to a small area of Mexico, can spread to dominate global agriculture. Projects in the Maize Genetics and Genomics group include de novo genome sequencing, transcriptomics, reverse genetic analysis of candidate genes, generation of novel resources for quantitative genetic mapping and extensive field work across multiple sites in Mexico and overseas. Our work includes active collaboration with CONABIO, CIMMYT, UNAM, the University of Cambridge, UC Davis, Iowa State University, TAMU, USDA, U. Missouri and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.
