The Frank lab uses grafting as a tool to look at the coordination of growth and development between root and shoot systems. While certain graft combinations have been shown to increase tolerance to a variety of abiotic and biotic stresses, and significantly increase yield, the mechanisms underlying the success of these graft combinations is poorly understood. The lab uses genetics, genomics, and phenomics tools to explore and modify grafting-induced traits.
