Method for identifying key regulator genes may speed improvements in fertilizer use and other efficiencies

When a plant is introduced to an abundant patch of water or fertilizer, a cascade of genetic and molecular actions lead to beneficial physiological responses such as root development and increased biomass. Identifying the genes involved in the early molecular responses has been difficult, but a Purdue University scientist has led an effort that can identify the genetic mechanisms and predict targets for improving crop plants.
