Research in Dr. Wang’s program is dedicated to using translational genomics to improve crop production in Florida. This integrated approach combines genomics, bioinformatics, molecular genetics, and biology to understand the genetic basis of important agronomic and economic traits of major row crops (e.g., sugarcane and peanut) and biofuel crops (e.g., energy cane and napiergrass). The overall goals of Dr. Wang’s program are to develop genetic markers associated with a breeder’s desired set of plant traits and to identify each component that influences those traits with the ultimate goal of designing systematic improvement strategies for developing superior crop cultivars.
