Hazen Receives DOE-USDA Grant to Improve Energy Crops

A collaboration between Todd Mockler of the Danforth Plant Science Center and UMass Biology professor Sam Hazen is among ten projects selected to receive funding from the DOE-USDA Plant Feedstock Genomics for Bioenergy Program. Mockler and Hazen seek to use genomics and genetics in the model grass system Brachypodium distachyon to identify genes involved in light perception and signaling that will increase the yield and improve the composition of bioenergy grasses.
