Dr. Magdy Alabady, Dr. James Leebens-Mack, and Dr. CJ Tsai are IOB-affiliated faculty members who are working on a large genomic project funded by the National Science Foundation.  Along with other Southeastern universities, UGA is working to complete the first complete genome sequence for dogwoods, allowing for new varieties that are strong and beautiful.  For more information, please see the story here.
