“Switchgrass metabolism” will be presented by Gautam Sarath, research molecular biologist, Wheat, Sorghum and Forage Research Unit, USDA-ARS; adjunct professor, agronomy and horticulture, University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

An overview of studies on switchgrass conducted over the last few years will be discussed. Switchgrass is a perennial warm-season grass targeted as a bioenergy species. Knowledge about molecular changes accompanying dormancy and responses to biotic stressors will be needed to breed elite germplasm with improved winter survival and biotic resistance. Such data will be broadly applicable to other native perennial species as well.

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