  • Identifying deep similarities among plants as apparently disparate as rice, wheat, maize, and the other cereals

Research Abstract:

The Kellogg lab`s work identifies deep similarities among plants as apparently disparate as rice, wheat, maize, and the other cereals. Because similarity and difference are two sides of the same coin, in the process they have also discovered genes that contribute to the diversity of the great cereals of the world.
