Liang Dong, P3 faculty affiliation and professor of electrical and computer engineering appeared on the cover of the the October 2018 edition of CSA News from the Crop Science Society of America.
Yanhai Yin, P3 faculty, professor and chair of genetics, development and cell biology, published new research in the journal Current Biology that details how the protein Feronia works in the model plant Arabidopsis to promote growth and to confer disease resistance in the presence of bacterial pathogens.
Ashley Paulsen, a second year P3 student, is attending EPSCOR (Nebraska's Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research). This year's theme for the conference is "Microbiomes From Different Habitats: Soil, Water and Gut."
P3 students and faculty attended the 5th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium (IPPS) titled, "From plant, to data, to impact," in Adelaide, Australia.
Young is working alongside other researchers using a special chamber to grow plants on Earth that can mimic some of the conditions of space to test the possibilities for the future.
Guiping Hu, P3 faculty member, is part of an interdisciplinary team at Iowa State University trying to bridge the gap between agronomy and engineering in an effort to increase efficiency and reduce uncertainty for a range of key agricultural issues.
P3 co-PI, Patrick Schnable, is a lead team member for the development of CyNet. The team, which includes ISU engineering faculty, was recently awarded a $999,919 grant to help further technology-related research in the world around us, specifically in agriculture and transportation.
Julie Dickerson, director of the NSF Research Traineeship for the Predictive Plant Phenomics Program, was the principal investigator and Gaurav Kandoi, a PhD BCB student in her lab, was co-principal investigator on a successful Broadening Participation Allocation that requested computing time and
Our NSF Predictive Plant Phenomics Program's research trainees met today to celebrate the end of the spring semester. Over lunch they each shared details about their research projects.
We welcome and encourage US citizens, permanent residents, and international students who are enrolled in one of our six participating ISU graduate degree programs to participate in the Predictive Plant Phenomics (P3) Program.
Seven new PhD candidates joined the NSF Research Traineeship in Predictive Plant Phenomics (P3) and received NRT Fellowships for their first year. These students have backgrounds in microbiology, biochemistry, crop science, plant breeding, mechanical engineering, mathematics, and computer science. The P3 Program now has 13 students, including six members from the inaugural cohort who started in fall 2016. The P3 Program is directed by Julie Dickerson, Northrop Grumman Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
