KSU's leadership in wheat research recognized with $1.6M grant
Jesse Poland, assistant professor of plant pathology and adjunct assistant professor of agronomy, is the principal investigator of the project "GPF-PG: Genome Structure and Diversity of Wheat and Its Wild Relatives." The project will focus on ways to improve the current wheat genome assembly by using genetic information. Currently, the use of molecular markers in wheat breeding is limited because of their size, which is five times larger than the human genome.
