Sorghum is an more drought-tolerant relative of maize, and is a leading candidate for use in production of biofuels.

Dr. Reddy’s laboratory group, in collaboration with Dr. Asa Ben-Hur from Computer Sciences, will be examining how gene expression changes in response to drought in sorghum.  The goal is to produce varieties that could be grown in lands that are marginal for other kinds of agriculture.  See the full article describing the project in CSU’s Today:
