Meet the OK EPSCoR Researcher-of-the-Week: Dr. Zeng-Yu Wang

Building a Better Bioenergy Plant in the Genetic Transformation Lab

Dr. Zeng-Yu Wang's research in the genetic transformation lab at the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation focuses on the generation of novel germplasm by direct introduction of agronomical genes into important forage crops. Primary focus areas include:

  • Tissue culture development and transformation techniques
  • Cloning of agronomic genes and promoters
  • Production of transgenic forage plants with improved agronomic traits
