An Integrated Approach to Improving Plant Biomass Production
Identify genes involved in biomass accumulation. Dissect the QTL using an integrated analysis. Validate the significance of candidate genes or pathways in biomass accumulation by using RNAi, reverse genetic resources (insertion and deletion mutants) and overexpression coupled to a comprehensive analysis of morophology and physiology.Integrate expression and mapping data into gene browser/database to allow easy navigation and use of the data.
