The applications of genomic research reach wider than human health discoveries. Genomics can also help to improve the foods we eat, the energy we use, and the clothes we wear. HudsonAlpha uses the pow- er of genomics to improve sustainable crops for use as food, energy and fiber. Advances in computational biology and plant biotechnology allow HudsonAlpha researchers to identify key genes related to important crop traits such as increased yields, drought toler- ance, or pest resistance. The traits can be introduced into existing crop lines to develop the next generation of crops.
