About the Lab

The Ware lab has two primary goals:

(1) research into plant genomics, with a focus on functional and comparative genomics of model plant systems and agriculturally important crop plants; and

(2) development of tools, data sources and resources for the genomics research community.

The Ware lab also contributes actively to three large-scale, multi-institutional, cyber-infrastructure collaboratives designed to serve broad research and educational communities: the NSF-funded Gramene and CyVerse projects, and the DOE-funded Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase).The Ware lab is a dynamic research group and its composition has continued to evolve keeping in pace with its research objectives. During this period, two of our post-doctoral researchers Christophe Liseron-Monfils and Christos Noutsos completed their fellowships and advanced to newer career opportunities, while Michael Campbell joined our team as a new post-doctoral researcher.  On a similar note, Jurandir Vieira de Magalhaes successfully concluded his collaborative research with the lab as a visiting scientist from Embrapa Maize and Sorghum, Brazil while Dong Ding joined as a new visiting scientist from Huazhong Agricultural University, China.We also had Erin DeNardo from Washington University participating in Undergraduate Research Program(URP) in summer of 2016 .

  • Community Highlight: Lauren Lui May 10, 2021
    Lauren Lui (LL) is a project scientist with Adam Arkin’s lab researching subsurface microbiology using metagenomics and isolate assembly. Assembling microbial genomes can be challenging. This is especially true when retrieving sequences from metagenomics data that consist of microbial communities. One way to overcome this challenge is to create circularized […]
