UGA researchers track down gene responsible for short stature of dwarf pearl millet

Recently, plant geneticists at the University of Georgia successfully isolated the gene that creates dwarfed varieties of pearl millet. It is the first time a gene controlling an important agronomic trait has been isolated in the pearl millet genome. Their work appeared in the Mar. edition of the journal G3: Genes, Genomics, Genetics.
