Progress 01/01/12 to 12/31/12

Outputs
OUTPUTS: The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) membership consists of 67 faculty from 4 colleges: The College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences, The College of Biological Sciences, the Academic Health Center and the College of Science and Engineering. MPGI travel awards enabled 32 graduate students and 12 postdoctoral researchers from 26 university-wide labs to attend meetings to present their research and interact with scientists. MPGI coordinated and sponsored a Fall Symposium on the topic of "Systems Biology of Genetic Regulation " hosted by faculty members Chad Myers and Fumiaki Katagiri. The series also served as a one-credit course (PBI05960-002) for 9 students. Each visiting scientist chose a paper for students to read and critique. Students attended the Symposium and a day-long workshop on experimental designs using genomics to study for variation. Science on the Spot is a monthly gathering that has allowed MPGI faculty and members of their lab to present and discuss information on their current research in a social and relaxed environment. These gatherings have expanded opportunities for interdisciplinary connections with other University researchers. PARTICIPANTS: Members of the MPGI are faculty who are interested in the successful development and application of genomics and the resulting societal and environmental impact. The 67 members of MPGI are faculty from departments throughout four colleges at the University of Minnesota: The College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS), the College of Biological Sciences (CBS), the Institute of Technology (IT), and the Academic Health Center (AHC). MPGI directly supports the salary of faculty member M. David Marks, a functional genomics researcher in plant biology, plus support staff member Kit Leffler who is responsible for management and administration of the MPGI seminar series, the MPGI website and other administrative functions. MPGI has provided training and professional development for 32 graduate students and 12 postdoctoral researchers by supporting either their attendance at meetings to present research findings, or their travel to other educational institutions for training purposes.

Progress 01/01/11 to 12/31/11

Outputs
OUTPUTS: The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) membership consists of 67 faculty from 4 colleges: The College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences, The College of Biological Sciences, the Academic Health Center and the College of Science and Engineering. MPGI travel awards enabled 31 graduate students and 12 postdoctoral researchers from 33 university-wide labs to attend meetings to present their research and interact with scientists.MPGI coordinated and sponsored a Fall Symposium on the topic of "Beyond the Reference: Population Genomics" hosted by faculty members Nathan Springer and Peter Tiffin. The series also served as a one-credit course (PBIO5960-002) for 9 students. Each visiting scientist chose a paper for students to read and critique. Students attended the Symposium and a day-long workshop on experimental designs using genomics to study for variation. The Distinguished Scientist Lectureship Series features research by prominent scientists, particularly in the field of microbial and plant sciences. These lecturers are invited to campus to give seminars, discuss research, and interact with students, faculty, and the public. Science on the Spot is a bi-annual gathering that has allowed MPGI faculty and members of their lab to present and discuss information on their current research in a social and relaxed environment. These gatherings have expanded opportunities for interdisciplinary connections with other University researchers. MPGI has also begun to hold a faculty member lunch every other Wednesday, from Noon to 1 pm at the St. Paul student center. Faculty members are encouraged to bring a lunch and discuss science in an informal setting. PARTICIPANTS: Members of the MPGI are faculty who are interested in the successful development and application of genomics and the resulting societal and environmental impact. The 67 members of MPGI are faculty from departments throughout four colleges at the University of Minnesota: The College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS), the College of Biological Sciences (CBS), the Institute of Technology (IT), and the Academic Health Center (AHC). MPGI directly supports the salary of faculty member M. David Marks, a functional genomics researcher in plant biology, plus support staff member Sandesh Nicol who is responsible for management and administration of the MPGI seminar series, the MPGI website and other administrative functions. MPGI has provided training and professional development for 31 graduate students and 12 postdoctoral researchers by supporting either their attendance at meetings to present research findings, or their travel to other educational institutions for training purposes. TARGET AUDIENCES: Within the University community, the Institute facilitates crosscutting communications among faculty engaged in diverse areas of genomics research. With the sponsorship of retreats and seminar series, MPGI supports the dissemination of scientific knowledge among faculty, students, and staff. Building public awareness about genomics and its applications in a social and ethical context is one of MPGI's outreach functions via its website (www.mpgi.umn.edu) and the seminar series sponsored by the Institute. In addition, a major goal of MPGI is training outstanding students and postdoctoral researchers in this important biological field by providing them with travel awards. These are among the activities designed to bring benefits from genomics to Minnesotans, the nation, and the world. PROJECT MODIFICATIONS: Nothing significant to report during this reporting period.

Impacts
The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) promotes advances in microbial and plant genomics, genomics-enabled sciences, and molecular genetics. The Institute strives through research, educational, and outreach activities to foster a multi-disciplinary interchange of ideas and applications of cutting-edge technologies to research. Institute activities contribute to basic science and the translation of genomics for applications to the environment, agriculture, and human health. The scientific aim of the Institute is to enhance the development of functional and translational genomics concomitantly with the expansion of bioinformatics capabilities and the development of specialized instrumentation. Within the University community, the Institute facilitates interactions among faculty engaged in diverse areas of genomics research by promoting understanding of microbial and plant genomics, and providing access to genomics-related technologies. Cooperation among MPGI members helps to assure a strong basis for education in the disciplines of the basic agricultural, environmental, and health sciences. The Institute enhances faculty projects by supporting the educational activities of individual grad students and postdoctoral researchers. Building public awareness about genomics and its applications in a social and ethical context is one of MPGI's outreach functions. In addition, assisting in the training of outstanding students in this important biological field is a major goal.

Progress 01/01/10 to 12/31/10

Outputs
OUTPUTS: The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) membership consists of 67 faculty from 4 colleges: CFANS, CBS, IT, and AHC. MPGI funding supports salaries for one Professor and one Administrative Specialist. MPGI travel awards enabled 19 graduate students and 15 postdoctoral researchers from 28 university-wide labs to attend meetings to present their research and interact with scientists. MPGI funded equipment grants for 6 faculty members and shared equipment for the Cargill Building which totaled approximately $400,000. MPGI coordinated and sponsored a Fall Symposium on the topic of "Biological Applications of Next-Generation Sequencing" hosted by faculty members. The series also served as a one-credit course (PBIO5960-002) for 13 students. Each visiting scientist chose a paper for students to read and critique. Students attended the Symposium and a day-long workshop on next-generation sequencing. Other seminars presented by MPGI: The National Academy of Sciences Lectureship Series was changed to the Distinguished Scientists Lectureship Series in 2010. This series features research by prominent scientists, particularly in the field of microbial and plant sciences. These lecturers are invited to campus to give seminars, discuss research, and interact with students, faculty, and the public. Science on the Spot is a new monthly gathering that has allowed MPGI faculty and members of their lab to present and discuss information on their current research in a social and relaxed environment. These gatherings have expanded opportunities for interdisciplinary connections with other University researchers. PARTICIPANTS: Members of the MPGI are faculty who are interested in the successful development and application of genomics and the resulting societal and environmental impact. The 67 members of MPGI are faculty from departments throughout four colleges at the University of Minnesota: The College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS), the College of Biological Sciences (CBS), the Institute of Technology (IT), and the Academic Health Center (AHC). MPGI directly supports the salary of faculty member M. David Marks, a functional genomics researcher in plant biology, plus support staff member Sandesh Nicol who is responsible for management and administration of the MPGI seminar series, the MPGI website and other administrative functions. MPGI has provided training and professional development for 19 graduate students and 15 postdoctoral researchers by supporting either their attendance at meetings to present research findings, or their travel to other educational institutions for training purposes. TARGET AUDIENCES: Within the University community, the Institute facilitates crosscutting communications among faculty engaged in diverse areas of genomics research. With the sponsorship of retreats and seminar series, MPGI supports the dissemination of scientific knowledge among faculty, students, and staff. Building public awareness about genomics and its applications in a social and ethical context is one of MPGI's outreach functions via its website (www.mpgi.umn.edu) and the seminar series sponsored by the Institute. In addition, a major goal of MPGI is training outstanding students and postdoctoral researchers in this important biological field by providing them with travel awards. These are among the activities designed to bring benefits from genomics to Minnesotans, the nation, and the world. PROJECT MODIFICATIONS: Nothing significant to report during this reporting period.

Impacts
The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) promotes advances in microbial and plant genomics, genomics-enabled sciences, and molecular genetics. The Institute strives through research, educational, and outreach activities to foster a multi-disciplinary interchange of ideas and applications of cutting-edge technologies to research. Institute activities contribute to basic science and the translation of genomics for applications to the environment, agriculture, and human health. The scientific aim of the Institute is to enhance the development of functional and translational genomics concomitantly with the expansion of bioinformatics capabilities and the development of specialized instrumentation. Within the University community, the Institute facilitates interactions among faculty engaged in diverse areas of genomics research by promoting understanding of microbial and plant genomics, and providing access to genomics-related technologies. Cooperation among MPGI members helps to assure a strong basis for education in the disciplines of the basic agricultural, environmental, and health sciences. The Institute enhances faculty projects by supporting the educational activities of individual grad students and postdoctoral researchers. Building public awareness about genomics and its applications in a social and ethical context is one of MPGI's outreach functions. In addition, assisting in the training of outstanding students in this important biological field is a major goal.

Outputs
OUTPUTS: The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) membership consists of 64 faculty from 4 colleges: CFANS, CBS, IT, and AHC. MPGI funding supports salaries for Professor M. David Marks and Principal Office and Administrative Specialist, Sandesh Nicol. MPGI travel awards enabled 13 graduate students and 6 postdoctoral researchers from 15 university-wide labs to attend meetings to present their research and interact with scientists. MPGI funded three single semester bridging grants for graduate students of MPGI members who demonstrated financial need. The award recipients were: Yiping Qi (Fumi Katagiri, advisor), Xiaodong Sun (Carolyn Silflow, advisor) and Tian Hui (John Ward, advisor). For the 2008-2010 academic years, MPGI awarded two full year Research Assistantships for outstanding 3rd, 4th or 5th year Ph.D. candidates working in microbial or plant genomics. Award recipients were: Katie Ballering (Gary Dunny, advisor) and Yun Zhou (Min Ni, advisor). MPGI coordinated and sponsored a fall seminar series on the topic of "Genomics, Evolution, and Association Mapping" hosted by faculty members Nevin Young, Michael Sadowsky, Peter Tiffin and Ruth Shaw. The series also served as a one-credit course (PBIO5960-001) for several graduate students and Post Docs. Each visiting scientist chose a paper for students to read and critique. After presenting a seminar, the speaker met with students for discussion. Speakers for 2009 included: Sergey Nuzhdin (USC), Ashlee Earl (Broad Institute), Tony Long (UC-Irvine), Ana Caicedo (UMass-Amherst) and Richard Clark (Univ. Utah). Other seminars presented by MPGI: The NAS Lectureship Series features research by National Academy of Sciences members. Prominent scientists, particularly in the field of microbial and plant sciences, are invited to campus to give seminars, discuss research, and interact with students, faculty, and the public. NAS speakers in 2009 were: Jeffrey Palmer (Indiana Univ.-Bloomington) and Jasper Rine (UC-Berkley). The Leading-Edge Technologies Seminars highlight advanced techniques or their applications in the fields of microbial and plant genomics. Researchers who have developed or significantly adapted a technique are invited to give a seminar, meet with faculty, staff, and students, and provide the theoretical principles underlying the technique. Presenters for 2009 were: Richard Martin (AAT Tech), Vinayak Kapatral (IG), William Blank (IG). The Biweekly colloquia series (Spring 2009) has allowed MPGI faculty and members of their lab to present and discuss information on their current research. These seminars have expanded opportunities for interdisciplinary connections with other University researchers. PARTICIPANTS: Members of the MPGI are faculty who are interested in the successful development and application of genomics and the resulting societal and environmental impact. The 64 members of MPGI are faculty from departments throughout four colleges at the University of Minnesota: The College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS), the College of Biological Sciences (CBS), the Institute of Technology (IT), and the Academic Health Center (AHC). MPGI directly supports the salary of faculty member M. David Marks, a functional genomics researcher in plant biology, plus support staff member Sandesh Nicol who is responsible for management and administration of several MPGI seminar series: the National Academy of Sciences Lectureship Seminars, the Leading Edge Technologies Seminars, the Noon time Colloquia, the MPGI Course Seminar series, plus the annual MPGI Retreat. MPGI has provided training and professional development for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers by supporting either their attendance at meetings to present research findings, or their travel to other educational institutions for training purposes. The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute has provided two full year research assistantships for outstanding graduate students as well as three single semester bridging grants. TARGET AUDIENCES: Within the University community, the Institute facilitates crosscutting communications among faculty engaged in diverse areas of genomics research. With the sponsorship of retreats and seminar series, MPGI supports the dissemination of scientific knowledge among faculty, students, and staff. Building public awareness about genomics and its applications in a social and ethical context is one of MPGI's outreach functions via its website (www.mpgi.umn.edu) and the seminar series sponsored by the Institute. In addition, a major goal of MPGI is training outstanding students and postdoctoral researchers in this important biological field by providing them with fellowships, research assistantships, and travel awards. These are among the activities designed to bring benefits from genomics to Minnesotans, the nation, and the world. PROJECT MODIFICATIONS: Nothing significant to report during this reporting period.

Impacts
The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) promotes advances in microbial and plant genomics, genomics-enabled sciences, and molecular genetics. The Institute strives through research, educational, and outreach activities to foster a multi-disciplinary interchange of ideas and applications of cutting-edge technologies to research. Institute activities contribute to basic science and the translation of genomics for applications to the environment, agriculture, and human health. The scientific aim of the Institute is to enhance the development of functional and translational genomics concomitantly with the expansion of bioinformatics capabilities and the development of specialized instrumentation. Within the University community, the Institute facilitates interactions among faculty engaged in diverse areas of genomics research by promoting understanding of microbial and plant genomics, and providing access to genomics-related technologies. Cooperation among MPGI members helps to assure a strong basis for education in the disciplines of the basic agricultural, environmental, and health sciences. The Institute enhances faculty projects by supporting the educational activities of individual grad students and postdoctoral researchers. Building public awareness about genomics and its applications in a social and ethical context is one of MPGI's outreach functions. In addition, assisting in the training of outstanding students in this important biological field is a major goal.

Progress 01/01/08 to 12/31/08

Outputs
OUTPUTS: The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) membership consists of 66 faculty from 4 colleges: CFANS, CBS, IT, and AHC. MPGI funding supports salaries for Professor M. David Marks, Principal Office and Admin. Specialist Sandesh Nicol, and Associate Admin. Suzanne Livingston (retired). MPGI travel awards enabled 13 graduate students and 8 postdoctoral researchers from 18 university-wide labs to attend meetings to present their research and interact with scientists. MPGI awarded three single semester bridging grants for graduate students of MPGI members who demonstrated financial need. The award recipients were: Yiping Qi (Fumi Katagiri, advisor), Xiaodong Sun (Carolyn Silflow, advisor) and Tian Hui (John Ward, advisor). MPGI also awarded two grants for proposals for shared equipment. Award recipients were Dan Voytas and Nathan Springer. For the 2008-2010 academic years, MPGI awarded two full year Research Assistantships for outstanding 3rd, 4th or 5th year Ph.D. candidates working in microbial or plant genomics. Award recipients were: Katie Ballering (Gary Dunny, advisor) and Yun Zhou (Min Ni, advisor). MPGI coordinated and sponsored a spring seminar series on the topic of "The Importance of Fungal Biology/Interactions" hosted by faculty member Georgiana May (Ecology, Evolution and Behavior). The series also served as a one-credit course (PBIO5960-002) for several graduate students. Each scientist chose a paper for students to read and critique. After presenting a seminar, the speaker met with students for discussion. Speakers for 2008 included: Francois Lutzoni (Duke Univ.), Marilyn Roossinck (Noble Foundation), Nancy Keller (U of W-Madison), Leah Cowen (U of Toronto) and Sarah Watkinson (Univ. of Oxford). Other seminars presented by MPGI: The NAS Lectureship Series features research by National Academy of Sciences members. Prominent scientists, particularly in the field of microbial and plant sciences, are invited to campus to give seminars, discuss research, and interact with students, faculty, and the public. NAS speakers in 2008 were: Jeff Bennetzen (U of Georgia), Hugo Dooner (Rutgers Univ.), Richard Dixon (Noble Foundation) and Jim Tumlinson (Penn State Univ.) The Leading-Edge Technologies Seminars highlight advanced techniques or their applications in the fields of microbial and plant genomics. Researchers who have developed or significantly adapted a technique are invited to give a seminar, meet with faculty, staff, and students, and provide the theoretical principles underlying the technique. Presenters for 2008 were: Amber Volk from Beckman Coulter Inc. The Biweekly colloquia series has allowed MPGI faculty and members of their lab to present and discuss information on their current research. These seminars have expanded opportunities for interdisciplinary connections with other University researchers. MPGI sponsored a one day Mini-symposium titled "Plant Metabolism - Good things made in plants." This was part of the outreach component of the NSF Plant Genome Research Projects. Speakers included Rob Last (Michigan State Univ.), David R. Gang (U of Arizona), Lloyd Sumner (Noble Foundation) and Richard Dixon (Noble Foundation). PARTICIPANTS: Members of the MPGI are faculty who are interested in the successful development and application of genomics and the resulting societal and environmental impact. The 66 members of MPGI are faculty from departments throughout four colleges at the University of Minnesota: The College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS), the College of Biological Sciences (CBS), the Institute of Technology (IT), and the Academic Health Center (AHC). MPGI directly supports the salary of faculty member M. David Marks, a functional genomics researcher in plant biology, plus support staff members Suzanne Livingston (now retired) and Sandesh Nicol who are responsible for management and administration of several MPGI seminar series: the National Academy of Sciences Lectureship Seminars, the Leading Edge Technologies Seminars, the Noon time Colloquia, the MPGI Spring Course Seminars series, plus the annual MPGI Retreat. MPGI has provided training and professional development for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers by supporting either their attendance at meetings to present research findings, or their travel to other educational institutions for training purposes. The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute has provided two full year research assistantships for outstanding graduate students as well as three single semester bridging grants and two grants for equipment. TARGET AUDIENCES: Within the University community, the Institute facilitates crosscutting communications among faculty engaged in diverse areas of genomics research. With the sponsorship of retreats and seminar series, MPGI supports the dissemination of scientific knowledge among faculty, students, and staff. Building public awareness about genomics and its applications in a social and ethical context is one of MPGI's outreach functions via its website (www.mpgi.umn.edu) and the seminar series sponsored by the Institute. In addition, a major goal of MPGI is training outstanding students and postdoctoral researchers in this important biological field by providing them with fellowships, research assistantships, and travel awards. These are among the activities designed to bring benefits from genomics to Minnesotans, the nation, and the world. PROJECT MODIFICATIONS: MPGI has not had any project modifications in 2008.

Outputs
OUTPUTS: MPGI membership consists of 65 faculty from 4 colleges: CFANS, CBS, IT, and AHC. MPGI funding supports salaries for Plant Biology Prof. M. D. Marks, Prin. Office/Admin. Spec. S. Nicol, and Assoc. Admin. S. Livingston. MPGI travel awards enabled 11 graduate students and 9 postdoctoral researchers, from 18 university-wide labs, to attend meetings to present their research and interact with scientists. With contributions from CFANS and the Graduate School, MPGI funded graduate student fellowships in the spring semester of 2007 for: Anna Selmecki (J. Berman, advisor) and Carrie Eberle (A. Smith & N. Anderson, co-advisors). For the 2007-08 academic year, MPGI awarded two Research Assistantships for outstanding 3rd or 4th year Ph.D. candidates working in microbial or plant genomics. The award recipients were: Brian Piasecki (C. Silflow, advisor), and Edward Gilding (M. D. Marks, advisor). MPGI coordinated and sponsored a spring seminar series and a one-credit course (PBIO5960-001) on the topic of "Transport Processes in Plants and Microbes" organized by Assoc. Prof. John Ward, Plant Biology, and Asst. Prof. Jeff Gralnick, Biotechnology Institute. Renowned scientists Julian Schroeder, UC-San Diego; Eric Webb, USC; Andreas Weber, Michigan State U; Dianne Newman, California Institute of Technology; Michael Udvardi, Noble Foundation; and Mary Lou Guerinot, Dartmouth College visited campus over a six-week period (3/20-5/1/07) to present research seminars and participate in the course. Each scientist submitted papers for students to read and critique prior to their arrival on campus, and after presenting a seminar, met with the class for further discussion of their research. Other MPGI seminar series: (A) The NAS Lectureship Series features research by National Academy of Sciences members. Prominent scientists, particularly in the field of microbial and/or plant science, are invited to campus to give seminars, discuss research, and interact with students, faculty, and the public. The National Academy of Sciences members who presented in 2007 were: Prof. Eugene Nester, U of Washington; Prof. Roy Curtiss, III, , Arizona State U; Prof. Michael Thomashow, Mich State U; and, Dr. Roger Beachy, Pres., Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, St. Louis, MO. (B) The Leading-Edge Technologies Seminars highlight advanced techniques or their applications in the fields of microbial and plant genomics. Researchers who have developed or significantly adapted a technique are invited to give a seminar, meet with faculty, staff, and students, and provide the theoretical principles underlying the technique. Presenters in 2007 were: K. Heidrich and D. Dailey from Illumina Biosciences Corp; G. Hunter, LI-COR Biosciences; and Prof. Wolf Frommer, Carnegie Inst., Stanford U. (C) In the fall of 2007, MPGI held a biweekly colloquia series, "Bioenergy and Biofuels" in which faculty presented their current research on the development of alternative energy sources based on bioenergy. These well-attended seminars have expanded opportunities for interdisciplinary connections among University researchers, and provide a forum for initiating future collaborations in bioenergy and biofuels.

Progress 01/01/06 to 12/31/06

Outputs
The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute, formed from the merger of the Plant Molecular Genetics Institute (PMGI) and the Center for Microbial and Plant Genomics (CMPG), promotes advances in microbial and plant genomics, genomics-enabled sciences, and molecular genetics. The Institute strives through research, educational, and outreach activities to foster a multi-disciplinary interchange of ideas and applications of cutting-edge technologies to research. Institute activities contribute to basic science and the translation of genomics for applications to the environment, agriculture, and human health. MPGI is composed of 66 faculty members representing four Colleges at the U of MN: Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS), Biological Sciences (CBS), Institute of Technology (IT), and Academic Health Center (AHC). In 2006, MPGI funds were used to partially support the salaries of faculty member M. David Marks, Prin. Admin. Spec. Odette Holter, and two students. MPGI awards enabled 18 graduate students and 17 postdoctoral researchers from 24 university-wide labs to attend meetings to present their research and interact with scientists. With contributions from CFANS and the Graduate School, MPGI continues sponsorship of two graduate integrative fellowships: one for the second of a two-year stipend to Anna Selmecki (J Berman, advisor), and one for a single year's stipend to Carrie Eberle (A Smith & N Anderson, co-advisors). MPGI coordinated and sponsored a one-credit graduate course (PBIO5960-001) on the topic of Natural Variation which brought renowned scientists to campus for each of five weeks to lecture and interact. Each scientist chose a paper for students to read and critique, then after giving a seminar, the speaker met with students for discussion. It was an excellent opportunity for students to learn about exciting fields of science and interact with prominent researchers. The scientists participating in the short course were: Devaki Bhaya, Stanford U; Ed Buckler, USDA-ARS, Cornell U; Justin Borevitz, U of Chicago; Jennifer Hughes Martiny, Brown U; Eric Richards, Washington U. MPGI sponsors several seminar series throughout the academic year: (A) The NAS Lectureship Series features research by National Academy of Sciences members. Prominent scientists, particularly in the field of microbial and/or plant science, are invited to campus to give seminars, discuss research, and interact with students, faculty, and the public. NAS scientists in 2006 were: 1) Prof E. Peter Greenberg, U of Washington; 2) Prof James Tiedje, Mich State U; 3) Prof Marc Van Montagu, Ghent U, Belgium. (B) The Leading-Edge Technologies Seminars highlight advanced techniques or their applications in the fields of microbial and plant genomics. Researchers who have developed or significantly adapted a technique are invited to give a seminar, meet with faculty, staff, and students, and provide the theoretical principles underlying the technique. (C) At Bi-Weekly Seminars, MPGI faculty present information concerning their current research. These seminars have expanded opportunities for interdisciplinary connections with other University researchers.

Impacts
With the merger of PMGI and CMPG in 2005, the Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) has continued to expand its mission to contribute to basic science and the translation of genomics for applications in the environment, agriculture, and human health. The combined resources have allowed MPGI to allocate even more support for a greater number of students and postdoctoral scientists to travel to meetings to present their research and interact with current and future scientists in their fields. The combined 25-year history of PMGI and CMPG, along with the supported seminar series, the fellowships, the travel awards, the annual retreat, and the spring course, have all succeeded in creating opportunities for productive interactions for faculty, staff, and students. MPGI supports its members by promoting genetics and genomics research which can advance innovations in agriculture, the environment, and human health. The cooperative efforts of MPGI scientists enhance their individual projects and assure a strong basis for education of students in the disciplines of the basic agricultural, environmental, and health sciences. MPGI seeks to establish the University of Minnesota as a center of innovation in microbial and plant genomics. Through research, education and outreach activities, MPGI promotes understanding of and access to microbial and plant genomics and genomics-related technologies.

Progress 01/01/05 to 12/31/05

Outputs
The Plant Molecular Genetics Institute (PMGI) fosters interdisciplinary applications of molecular biology and genetics in plant biology and agriculture. PMGI is composed of 29 faculty members and their lab personnel in eight departments of the College of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences and the College of Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota. PMGI supports research and organizes educational opportunities. In 2005, faculty member M. David Marks, Principal Administrative Specialist Odette Holter, Ph.D. candidate Ryoko Oono, and two undergraduates were supported in part by PMGI funds. PMGI support also enabled 13 graduate students or postdoctoral scientists to attend scientific meetings to present their research. In 2005, PMGI coordinated and sponsored a graduate course on Plant Signaling that featured five internationally known speakers who interacted extensively with PMGI students, faculty, and staff: Sheila McCormick (USDA Plant Gene Expression Center, Albany, CA); Steve Clark (Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Judy Callis ( Molecular and Cellular Biology, UC-Davis); Shuqun Zhang (Biochemistry, U. of MO-Columbia); and Jeff Harper (Biochemistry, U of Nevada-Reno). This year, PMGI and the Center for Microbial and Plant Genomics (CMPG) voted to merge, becoming the Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute (MPGI) in response to a charge from the Deans of CBS and COAFES. There are 65 full members of CMPG and 24 associate members; all but one of the 29 PMGI members were also members of CMPG. The consensus was that the memberships and goals of the groups overlapped extensively, so the merger seemed appropriate and would combine the strengths of both. Throughout 2005, PMGI and CMPG had many joint activities: Members of PMGI labs, together with members of the Center for Microbial and Plant Genomics, presented biweekly informal research seminars throughout the academic year. CMPG originally initiated a National Academy of Sciences Lecturer Seminar Series, a Leading-Edge Technologies Seminar Series, and a seminar series featuring presentations of research carried out in the Cargill Building for Microbial and Plant Genomics. These activities were continued jointly by PMGI and CMPG in 2005. PMGI and CMPG hosted an annual retreat in November at the University of Minnesota Humphrey Institute, which was attended by about 80 institute researchers. Speakers included: Carol Ishimaru (Plant Pathology, U of MN); Mark Johnston (Genetics, Washington University Medical School); Neil Olszewski (Plant Biology, U of MN); Lai-Wa Tam, Post Doctoral Research Associate (Lefebvre lab); and PMGI-funded graduate students, Anna Selmecki (Berman lab) and David Schladt (May lab). A poster session featuring a dozen research posters from PMGI and CMPG labs was also held during the retreat. Contributions from the College of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences and the Graduate School have allowed CMPG to award two 2-year ($25,000/yr) graduate integrative fellowships in 2005 to recipients, Anna Selmecki (Berman lab) and Garrett Olson (Kapur lab).

Impacts
PMGI has a rich 20-year history: the bi-weekly seminars, the annual retreat, the spring course have all succeeded in bringing faculty, staff, and students together very productively. PMGI supports its members by promoting genetics and genomics research which can advance innovations in agriculture. The cooperative efforts of the PMGI scientists vitalizes their individual projects and assures a strong basis for education of students in the discipline of the basic agricultural sciences. The CMPG seeks to establish the University of Minnesota as a center of innovation in Microbial and Plant Genomics. Through research, education and outreach activities, CMPG promotes understanding of and access to microbial and plant genomics and genomics-related technologies. CMPGs membership in the Consortium on Law and Values in Health, Environment & the Life Sciences provides campus-wide recognition, and has allowed development of two national symposia (one on GMOs and one on Intellectual Property). With the merger of PMGI and CMPG, The Microbial and Plant Genomics Institute will be even better able to contribute to basic science and the translation of genomics for applications in the environment, agriculture, and human health.

Progress 01/01/04 to 12/31/04

Outputs
The Plant Molecular Genetics Institute (PMGI) fosters interdisciplinary applications of molecular biology and genetics in plant biology and agriculture. PMGI is composed of 35 faculty members and their lab personnel in eight departments of the College of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences and the College of Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota. PMGI supports research, often including joint research projects, and organizes educational opportunities. Faculty member M. David Marks, Ph.D. candidates Kavitha Kuppusamy and Margaret Chen, and graduate students Jenny Dechaine, Keunsub Lee, and David Schladt were supported in part by PMGI funds. PMGI provided funds to enable 10 graduate students or postdoctoral scientists to attend scientific meetings to present their research and partially supported travel of two graduate students to obtain specialized training in labs outside the University. Members of PMGI labs, along with members of the Center for Microbial and Plant Genomics (CMPG), presented biweekly informal research seminars throughout the academic year. The PMGI spring course on molecular plant-microbe interactions featured five internationally known speakers who interacted extensively with PMGI students, faculty and staff scientists. Over 90 members of PMGI and CMPG attended the annual retreat, held at Coffman Union on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota. Speakers at the retreat included: Perry Hackett (Genetics, Cell Biology and Development), Corby Kistler (USDA-ARS and Plant Pathology), Tom Michaels (Horticultural Science), Wei-Shou Hu (Chemical Engineering and Materials Science) and PMGI graduate students Jenny Dechaine, Kavitha Kuppusamy, Keunsub Lee and Margaret Chen. A poster session with over 30 research posters from PMGI and CMPG labs was held during the retreat. The Institute provided matching funds for the purchase of a digital camera that is to be shared by several PMGI labs and a laptop computer to be used primarily for seminars. PMGI was a supporter of the annual meeting of the International Triticeae Mapping Initiative, organized and attended by PMGI members, and provided partial bridging funds to cover a temporary grant shortfall in a PMGI lab.

Impacts
The PMGI fosters cooperation among its members and other to strengthen projects in plant molecular genetic research and applications in agriculture, food, and environmental sciences. PMGI encourages the development of innovative methods in agriculture based on recent developments in biology, and the education of future scientists about how to implement genomic, molecular, and cellular techniques in agriculture.

Progress 01/01/02 to 12/31/02

Outputs
The Plant Molecular Genetics Institute (PMGI) fosters interdisciplinary applications of molecular biology and genetics in plant biology and agriculture. PMGI is composed of 27 faculty members and their lab personnel in seven departments of the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences and the College of Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota. PMGI supports research, often including joint research projects, and organizes educational opportunities. Faculty member M. David Marks, Ph.D. candidates Rachel Nguyen and Andy Baumgarten, and incoming graduate student Divya Chandran were supported in part by PMGI funds. PMGI provided funds to send six postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to scientific meetings to present posters of their work, and to partially cover the cost of a specialized course off-campus for one postdoctoral fellow. Members of PMGI laboratories presented biweekly seminars throughout the academic year. The PMGI spring course featured five internationally known speakers in the area of plant development who interacted extensively with PMGI students. The PMGI annual retreat, attended by about 50 members, included talks by Dr. Bonnie Bartell (Dept. Biochemistry & Cell Biology, Rice University), University of MN scientists Ann Fallon (Entomology) and Claudia Schmidt-Dannert (Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics), and PMGI graduate student Divya Chandran. The Institute also purchased a service agreement for a piece of shared equipment, the purchase of which had been funded in part by PMGI.

Impacts
The PMGI fosters cooperation among its members and other to strengthen projects in plant molecular genetic research and applications in agriculture, food, and environmental sciences. PMGI encourages the development of innovative methods in agriculture based on recent developments in biology, and educating future scientists about how to implement genomic, molecular, and cellular techniques in agriculture.
