The Schnable Group is based at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and is headed by James Schnable, Assistant Professor of Agronomy and Horticulture.
Research in the Schnable Group focuses on understanding how gene expression is regulated in plants through comparative genomics in the grasses. Expertise in the lab ranges from purely in silico comparative genomic studies using evolutionary conservation to define functional gene regulatory sites to studying water stress in the field using next generation phenotyping technologies.
