Genomics: What’s a SNP?

Genomics — it’s one of the most cutting-edge fields in science at the moment. In just the past few years, important species genomes have been unraveled, or sequenced. Wheat, reindeer and barley are just some of the most recent ones.

Beyond sequencing the genomes of new species, scientists also unravel the genomes of individual animals […]

Research shows genomics can match plant variety to climate stresses

A new study has shown that genomic signatures of adaptation in crop plants can help predict how crop varieties respond to stress from their environments. Led by a Kansas State University research team, this is the first study to document that genomic signatures of adaptation can help identify plants that will do well under certain […]
