Welcome to Mockler Lab
Mockler lab applies cutting edge technology and pioneers new analytical techniques to better understand plant genomes. We have been a major proponent of Brachypodium distachyon as a model organism for studying major crops, since it is much more closely related to several essential grains such as rice and sorghum. In addition, we have also sequenced the genomes of a number of other commercially relevant crops and hope to promote a better future through a deeper scientific understanding of the organisms we so heavily rely upon.
