“Leveraging genomics, genetics and breeding to understand crop adaptation to nutrient stress” will be presented by Jamie O’Rourke, research geneticist, USDA-ARS; collaborator, agronomy, Iowa State University.

Plants require many micronutrients for proper growth and development, but environmental conditions often limit soil nutrient availability resulting in stunted growth and reduced yield. We combine functional genomics, physiology, and plant breeding to identify biological pathways and gene networks associated with nutrient deficiency responses and enhanced stress tolerance.
