$2M awarded for Upland cotton genome sequence

Research will facilitate a new era of DNA-informed breeding and biology for cotton.

HudsonAlpha faculty investigator Jane Grimwood, Ph.D., will share a $2.4 million grant with four other researchers to continue genomics research on Upland cotton. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the research is intended to advance the groundbreaking discovery published in the April edition of Nature Biotechnology, which explained how researchers, including Chris Saski of Clemson University, decoded the genetic makeup of Upland cotton for the first time.
