Genetic structures in corn shed light on how crops respond to floods and other environmental stresses.

IBP meets partners for Genomes2Fields Initiative

On 10-12 November 2014, a group of collaborators from Iowa State University, CIMMYT, iPlant Collaborative and Leafnode LLC gathered to create a shared understanding of the capabilities of the Breeding Management System within the Genomes2Fields initiative.

Growing with HPC

Much of the HPC culture has to do with growth, whether expanding our predictions about the future of machinery or figuring out new ways to interact with particles. For Associate Professor Carolyn Lawrence, HPC helps her work with natural growth - in ways that were never before possible.

Change Agent: Carolyn Lawrence

Carolyn Lawrence, an enthusiast of extreme data management and motorcycles, is working to create new data tools for plant breeders, an effort that could speed up the development of new stress-resistant crop varieties.
