The Plants for Human Health Institute operates three research greenhouses andeight growth chambers. Use of these facilities has included strawberry breeding and disease screening, broccoli breeding, screening natural pesticides for phytotoxicity and growing crops as varied as oats, wheat, rice, Arabidopsis and turf. N.C. State researchers have first priority use of the available space, but […]

Whole Grains: More Productive Rice, Oat Genome Mapping

June 21, 2013

Cytokinin Signaling and More Productive Rice Like Hsieh, Ann Loraine, PhD, with the UNC Charlotte Departments of Genetics and Bioinformatics has conducted extensive research in Arabidopsis.

Whole Grains: Maximizing the Potential

June 13, 2013

UNC Charlotte’s Ann Loraine, PhD, and Research Technician Ivory Clabaugh have achieved something uncommon. They have found a way to grow rice indoors in an NCRC growth room. Their rice research is just one of four programs on campus where scientists are working to improve the nutritional value of grains and maximize their potential to prevent diseases like diabetes […]
