What the epigenome can tell us about the genomes of crop plants
In this recorded QAAFI Science seminar, GIH collaborator, Dr Peter Crisp, a DECRA Research Fellow and Lecturer who leads a research group in the School of Agriculture and Food Science, describes their recently developed approach that uses DNA methylation profiling of a single tissue (eg a leaf) to distill a genome down to the relatively small fraction of regions that are functionally valuable for trait variation throughout development.
