Regulation of flowering by environmental cues in crucifers and grasses


Richard Amasino, University of Wisconsin–Madison,  member of NAS(National Academy of Sciences),USA


Richard Amasino is a professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. His work focuses on how plants perceive seasonal cues such as changing day-length and temperature and how they use such cues to determine when to initiate flowering. His most recent focus has been on understanding the biochemical pathway through which perception of winter cold leads to flowering in the spring–a process known as vernalization. He is also a member of the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center—one of the three bioenergy research centers established by the U.S. Department of Energy. His work with the center involves studying the biochemical basis of plant biomass accumulation as well as directing the Center’s education and outreach program. He is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Teaching Professor and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. He served on many distinguished positions including Editor for Science and President of ASPB. He received a BS from Pennsylvania State University and a PhD from Indiana University.
