About the Team

The Genomics team of the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Dallas focuses on applying genomics and molecular genetics to crop improvement, with an emphasis on tropical and subtropical crops. The team is comprised of researchers with expertise in bioinformatics, evolutionary genomics, genetics, and molecular biology. Current researchtopics include genomic dissection of the polyploidy sugarcane genome for energy cane improvement, flower development and sex chromosome evolution in Caricaceae, genomics of abiotic stress tolerance in warm-season turfgrass, and gene regulatory networks underlying CAM photosynthesis in pineapple.
