Research Summary

The Gehan lab focuses on mining natural variation for improved resistance to temperature stress, which will help to improve crops, and move towards answering how plants perceive temperature. To measure natural variation in temperature stress resistance, the Gehan lab develops computational tools that can quickly and accurately measure plant traits (phenotype) over time.
