The Plant Genome faculty, staff, and students at Iowa State University are committed to fundamental discovery and dissemination of scientific resources and information. They actively strive to provide opportunities for education and outreach to the community at large with a special emphasis on K-12 teachers and students as well as undergraduate students.
The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) graduate program is designed for students interested in the study of mechanisms controlling the composition, structure, and functional processes of ecological systems and the mechanisms that regulate the pattern and rate of evolutionary change within and among species. Our interdepartmental program provides students with an interdisciplinary education and opportunities to train and conduct research in an area of interest. Our graduates are qualified to pursue basic and applied research careers in academia, government, and industry.
Genetics and genomics graduate program at Iowa State
The Comparative Evolutionary Genomics of Cotton is a developing resource for BAC, EST and gene expression data deriving from phylogenetic analysis with genomic investigations. The underlying project is addressing fundamental questions about morphological evolution, the comparative genetic basis of apparent convergence during repeated domestication of divergent wild progenitors, modes and mechanisms responsible for genome size variation, and the functional and agronomic significance of polyploidy. It is associated with a NSF project (PI. J.
NSF's mission is to advance the progress of science, a mission accomplished by funding proposals for research and education made by scientists, engineers, and educators from across the country.
