Evolutionary genomics of abiotic stress resistance in wild and cultivated sunflowers
Principal Investigator: Khaled Bali, UC ANR Specialist, 559-646-6541, email@example.com
This work will involve the field-based evaluation of drought resistance and related traits in a large number of sunflower lines, association mapping to identify genes/genomic regions conferring drought resistance, and detailed physiological analyses aimed at understanding the mechanistic basis of drought resistance.
