A University of Nebraska-Lincoln biochemist is using plant phenomics techniques in novel ways to further her research.
Katarzyna Glowacka, assistant professor of biochemistry, received a five-year, nearly $1.4 million grant from NSF’s Faculty Early Career Development Program. She will delve into the role non-photochemical quenching (NPQ) plays in enabling miscanthus to fend off cold-induced damage.
Collaborations raise everyone up. This is something computer engineering Ph. D candidate Rubi Quiñones has learned in her time at UNL.
Embracing collaborative efforts is one of the reasons she was recognized at the recent North American Plant Phenotyping Network (NAPPN) annual conference in Athens, Ga., in February — earning the 2022 NAPPN Graduate Student Award for Research and Service.
The Agricultural Research Division of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln presented awards to two assistant professors on March 1st, in recognition of excellence in research.
With support from a National Science Foundation grant, University of Nebraska-Lincoln researchers are developing a new tool that will help them better identify plant characteristics that are critical to improving crop performance. The three-year, $534,194 grant will be used to develop an instrument that will improve capacity, sensitivity and throughput for plant phenotyping.
The prospect of a higher-yielding Corn Belt could rest – or advance – on a conveyer belt monitored by cameras that boast superhuman sight, according to new research from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Known as a high-throughput phenotyping system, the automated set-up resides at the Greenhouse Innovation Center on Nebraska Innovation Campus.
