Genomics-Enabled Improvement Of Andropogoneae Grasses As Feedstocks For Enhanced Biofuel Production

Using genetic sequencing and bioinformatics, investigators will seek ways to improve crop yield, quality and sustainability of the four leading biomass candidates — sugarcane, Miscanthus, switchgrass and sorghum.


Feedstock Production/Agronomy Program

This program provides statistically sound information on yields, geographic variation, and agronomic requirements of sustainable lignocellulosic feedstocks and identifies agronomic procedures and feedstocks that will facilitate sustainable systems for the production of biofuels worldwide.
