New Publication

Dr. Ramón Molina-Bravo, was a PhD student that worked with myself and Dr. Bryon Sosinski at NCSU. Dr. Molina-Bravo just published an article that details a study that he conducted as part of his research. In a nutshell, he was able to identify several plants in a population of seedlings that had higher chlorophyll fluorescence, a trait that is associated with heat tolerance. We are using those individuals in our breeding program to see if they will survive the heat in additional locations and we will be using them in crosses in the near future.  Congrats Ramon! Here is a link to that article. doi:10.1016/j.scienta.2011.07.022
