“Changing cell walls to improve sorghum for bioenergy and forage uses” presented by Scott Sattler, research molecular biologist, USDA-ARS; adjunct associate professor, agronomy and horticulture, University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Scott Sattler will provide an overview on sorghum research to alter phenylpropanoid metabolism through brown midrib mutants (bmr) and transgenic approaches. He will discuss how these changes affect lignin, phenolic constituents and biomass conversion of sorghum. The effects of altering lignin synthesis on sorghum-insect interactions also will be discussed.

Free and open to public.
Refreshments served at 3:00 pm.
