Guidemaker: software for CRISPR based gene function discovery
CRISPR-Cas is a powerful tool for gene editing. CRISPR can also be used to discover gene function by disrupting every gene in the genome and screening millions of cells in parallel.
SCINet accelerates development of a big-data driven and inter-disciplinary technology platform for soybean post-genomic research
Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) is a versatile, nutrients-laden, economically invaluable crop with capacity to restore soil fertility through atmospheric nitrogen fixation. It holds great significance in ensuring adequate global nutritional food security and environmentally friendly sustainable agriculture.
Putting flowers on the map: Quantifying spatio-temporal patterns in floral resources for pollinators
Flowers provide critical nectar and pollen resources to support foraging, learning and memory, and reproduction of pollinating insects, but there are very few large-scale maps of floral resources for pollinators.
