Harnessing the Power of Photosynthesis

The Genomic Ecology of Global Change Research Theme is examining: how changes in networks of genes affect ecosystem metabolism when challenged by elements of global change, including elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide and ozone, increased drought, and altered interactions with insect herbivores and plant pathogens, how information obtained from genomes and metabolomes may be used to predict the effect of environmental changes on ecosystem function, and how this information can be formulated into an overarching framework of mathematical modeling
