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 .

  • The Bioreactor Battle: Understanding the Switch from Methane to Hydrogen Sulfide August 25, 2020
    The Bioreactor Battle: Understanding the Switch from Methane to Hydrogen Sulfide The Science Microbial communities are often flexible in how they get their energy. Even inside a methane-producing bioreactor that has been stable for years, community dynamics can be quickly disrupted. For example, introduction of sulfate could result in the production of hydro […]
  • Metagenome-discovered food webs in a long-term methanogenic bioreactor and rapid switch to sulfate reducing conditions August 25, 2020
    This Narrative contains the final MAGs that were published in FEMS Microbiology Ecology by Andrew R. St. James and Ruth E. Richardson from Cornell University. The post Metagenome-discovered food webs in a long-term methanogenic bioreactor and rapid switch to sulfate reducing conditions appeared first on KBase.
  • Publishing and Communicating with KBase August 19, 2020
    In this webinar, we examine two ways that KBase users can use their work in KBase to advance scientific discovery. First, we show KBase features and best practices associated with publishing Narratives, including improving data availability in accordance with FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data principles and utilizing the features […]
