Researchers mark milestone in pursuit of switchgrass genome

| May 17, 2012

In Washington, in an attempt to piece together the switchgrass genome, the DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) in an international partnership with includes the DOE BioEnergy Science Center (BESC) and the DOE Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) has sequenced plant genomes of related candidate bioenergy crops such as sorghum and the model grass Brachypodium but may have found the missing clues in foxtail millet, despite the crop not seen as a likely candidate for biofuel production.
