Sequencing of Sorghum Genome Completed

In a paper published in the journal Nature this week, Rutgers researchers Joachim Messing, Rémy Bruggmann, and a team of international collaborators have described the genome of sorghum, a drought-tolerant African grass. The findings could one day help researchers to produce better food crops for arid regions with rapidly expanding human populations, such as West Africa. Messing, director of the Waksman Institute of Microbiology at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, has been deeply involved in both the rice genome and maize (corn) genome sequencing projects.
