Recent Research

Unique Chromatin Regulators Discovered in Sorghum

In an effort to prove that epigenetics is behind some of sorghum’s specific features, researchers at Three Gorges University in China sought to clarify the function of the chromatin regulators and their interaction network.

Research Provides Support for Using Agricultural Configuration Techniques to Control Melanaphis sorghi

Researchers at Texas A&M University conducted a two year survey (2019-2020) of the abundance of Melanaphis sorghi and sorghum’s natural pest enemies in 42 sorghum fields located in the South Texas Gulf Coast.

The Epigenetics Behind the Adaptive Response of Sorghum to Phosphorus Deficiency

Recent studies have been successful in elucidating the genetic contributions underpinning the tolerance of some sorghum lines for low phosphorus conditions. Gladman and colleagues studied the environmental influence on how those genes work, known as epigenetics, under limiting phosphorus.
