Genome-Enabled Characterization of Orphan Receptor-Like Kinases in Plants

Lead Institution
Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Ljiljana Pasa-Tolic
This research will characterize the functions and clients (i.e., substrates) of receptor-like kinases (RLKs) of Arabidopsis, rice, and soybean. Objective 1 will reveal RLK functions by combing…

Dynamics of Microbiomes in Space (DynaMoS)

Lead Institution
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Janet Jansson
Microorganisms were the first colonizers of our planet and they have since evolved over billions of years to utilize the resources that are available to them. Of all of Earth’s habitats, soil is the…

Consortium for Advanced Sorghum Phenomics (CASP)

Lead Institution
Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Christer Jansson
The mission of the proposed project is to accelerate breeding of biomass sorghum to maximize terminal compositional (e.g., lignocellulosic) yield under drought and saline field conditions using novel…

Deep UV laser ablation system for spatial single-cell proteomics

Lead Institution
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator
William Chrisler
Laser capture microdissection (LCM) is the key capability for spatially resolved omicss. However, commercially available LCM systems are designed for mammalian tissues and feature UV lasers (330 nm),…

EPICON: Epigenetic Control of Drought Acclimation in Sorghum

Lead Institution
Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Christer Jansson
Genetic manipulation of crops to increase the presence or intensity of desirable traits has been critical to increasing agricultural productivity. These changes have primarily involved modification…

C4 Photosynthesis in Space (C4Space)

Lead Institution
Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Pubudu Handakumbura
C4 plants like maize (Zea mays) and sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) have a more efficient photosynthesis than C3 plants such as wheat (Triticum aestivum) and rice (Oryza sativa) due to a CO2-concentrating…

InterCom

Lead Institution
Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Christer Jansson
We intend to identify how molecular interactions at the intercellular level participate in controlling carbon assimilation, allocation and transformation in the plant-microbe-soil system (Fig. 1),…

Identification and quantification of biomarkers of malaria infection.

Lead Institution
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Kim Hixson
This application is for the continuation of the currently closed proposal 8211 "Membrane proteins of placental parasites". We have a joint grant proposal between Richard D. Smith and Michal…

Proteome Response to Arogenate Dehydratase Changes in Arabidopsis and Poplar

Lead Institution
Washington State University
Principal Investigator
Norman Lewis
Project type
Exploratory Research
Arogenate dehydratases (ADTs) are a class of isoenzymes involved in the production of phenylalanine (Phe). In addition to its involvement in protein biosynthesis, Phe is the starting metabolite in…

Dynamics of Microbiomes in Space (DynaMoS)

Lead Institution
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Janet Jansson
We propose to examine the population dynamics and community interactions of naturally co-adapted soil microbial consortia using multi-omics analysis, correlative molecular networking and metagenomics…

PhenoAccess: Physiological Phenotyping of Brachypodium Accessions

Lead Institution
Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory
Principal Investigator
Amir Ahkami
Although the effects of elevated CO2 on plant growth, physiology and metabolism has been investigated thoroughly, the underlying integrated organismal, cellular and molecular mechanisms of these…
