Who We Are

The Wallace Lab at the University of Georgia works on research related to improving crops in order to meet the demands of the 21st Century. We use a combination of bioinformatic, statistical, and field-based approaches to find the genes and gene networks that control basic plant traits. Plant breeders can then use this information to create healthier, more resilient crops. A major focus of the lab is how crop plants interact with the microbes in their environment, and how these interactions can be leveraged to improve agriculture.
