Research Summary

Application of computational bioinformatics and molecular genomics to plant genomes.

Research Description

The Mockler lab is located at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

His lab applies cutting edge technology and pioneers new analytical techniques to better understand plant genomes. His lab has been a major proponent of Brachypodium distachyon as a model organism for studying major crops, since it is much more closely related to several essential grains such as rice and sorghum. In addition, his lab has also sequenced the genomes of a number of other commercially relevant crops and hope to promote a better future through a deeper scientific understanding of the organisms we so heavily rely upon.
