K-State to lead first NSF-established research center for wheat
According to Gill, the research center creates unprecedented opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to work alongside industry partners and academic scientists, as well as to develop new genetic research that could immediately improve food security and safety.
"It's really a win-win for all involved," Gill said. "It's good news for Kansas State University because it's taking one of the university's big strengths and using it to improve food supplies, food safety and the economy, and train future scientists. It's good news for businesses that are interested in improving their wheat growing and breeding efforts. They will be able to use this research to accelerate those areas. We see this as very, very exciting news."
