Saving Lives Through Plant Science Reaps Rewards - Bold Business

"Millions of hungry, poor people don't have the hundred years it would take to repeat what conventional breeding did before," says geneticist Edward Buckler.
Buckler is the bold leader of a team of USDA Agriculture Research Service (ARS) geneticists working to address critical agricultural issues necessary for world food security, such as hybrid vigor, local adaptation, drought tolerance and disease resistance. Buckler is the first recipient of the National Academy of Science's Prize in Food and Agriculture Sciences. This scientist has turned his bold ideas into life-saving action to feed a hungry world. Through his pioneering work-using large-scale genomic approaches to associate genes with crop traits-plant breeders' more quickly know which genes to manipulate to improve critical attributes. Maize varieties adapted by geneticist Edward Buckler and his team, have 15 times the level of vitamin A of common varieties According to the United States Department of Agriculture, expediting variety development is vital to the US and global food security. For example, the maize varieties adapted by Buckler and his team have 15 times the level of vitamin A of common varieties. The additional vitamin A resolves a life-threatening deficiency for people in the developing world. Buckler's genetic analysis techniques have proven to be so affordable and adaptable, they have provided benefits far beyond the ARS lab. The methods have been used to improve the performance of more than 1,000 different species. Additionally, thousands of research groups around the world use the open-source software and databases developed by Buckler and his team. The $100,000 National Academy of Science Prize in Food and Agriculture Sciences recognizes research by a mid-career scientist at a US institution who has made a significant contribution to agriculture or food production. For his bold impact improving nutrition and food security, Edward Buckler wins inaugural NAS prize in food, ag sciences.

Edward S. Buckler
USDA-ARS/Cornell Edward S. Buckler Edward Buckler is a Research Geneticist with the Senior Science and Technology Service at the USDA-ARS and is an Adjunct Professor of Plant Breeding and Genetics at Cornell University. He is recognized as a leader in the integration of quantitative and statistical genetics with genomic and bioinformatic approaches, applying these tools to maize and other crops. This work has provided insights into how complex traits are controlled, and he has identified genetic variation useful for crop improvement. Dr. Buckler's group has also helped lead in the development of the largest public genetic mapping resources for any species. Their research has provided insights into the genetic diversity of species, the genetic architecture of complex traits, hybrid vigor, and the genes controlling numerous traits related to plant flowering, development, starch, and pro-Vitamin A. He has numerous leadership positions within the crop genetics community and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. 8:00 AM -Edward S. Buckler

"The science done here makes lots of sense," says Edward Buckler.
He is a geneticist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). He has a lab at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. Buckler was not part of the new study but says Karl's way of growing tall corn should make it grow nearly forever. "I have just never seen anyone try this in such a tall greenhouse," he says.
