About the Lab

The Ware lab has two primary goals:

(1) research into plant genomics, with a focus on functional and comparative genomics of model plant systems and agriculturally important crop plants; and

(2) development of tools, data sources and resources for the genomics research community.

The Ware lab also contributes actively to three large-scale, multi-institutional, cyber-infrastructure collaboratives designed to serve broad research and educational communities: the NSF-funded Gramene and CyVerse projects, and the DOE-funded Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase).The Ware lab is a dynamic research group and its composition has continued to evolve keeping in pace with its research objectives. During this period, two of our post-doctoral researchers Christophe Liseron-Monfils and Christos Noutsos completed their fellowships and advanced to newer career opportunities, while Michael Campbell joined our team as a new post-doctoral researcher.  On a similar note, Jurandir Vieira de Magalhaes successfully concluded his collaborative research with the lab as a visiting scientist from Embrapa Maize and Sorghum, Brazil while Dong Ding joined as a new visiting scientist from Huazhong Agricultural University, China.We also had Erin DeNardo from Washington University participating in Undergraduate Research Program(URP) in summer of 2016 .
