  • Ecological Genomics in Kansas
    • The mission of the EGI is to advance the discipline of ecological genomics and to make EGI the center for ecological genomics locally, nationally, and internationally.
  • Fungal Genetics Stock Center
    • A living microbe collection and a research resource repository that was established in 1960 and moved to Kansas State in November 2014, when it
      joined the Department of Plant Pathology. We primarily serve the fungal genetics research community by providing strains and other material with
      a simple MTA and low fees and are now leading the transition into the genome‐enabled microbiology era with new approaches to material and
      information resource integration and management. Fungal Genetics Stock Center Video
  • Integrated Genomics Facility
    • Our mission is to provide services and technologies for ultra high-throughput sequencing and gene expression analysis.
  • Great Plains Diagnostic Network
    • GPDN is a consortium of nine states including, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas and represents one region of the National Plant Diagnostic Network. The mission of GPDN includes coordinated diagnostics, secure communications, and training of first detectors.
  • International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium
    • The IWGSC, with more than 1,100 members in 55 countries, is an international, collaborative consortium, established in 2005 by a group of wheat growers, plant scientists, and public and private breeders. The vision of the IWGSC is a high quality genome sequence of bread wheat that serves as a foundation for the accelerated development of improved varieties and that empowers all aspects of basic and applied wheat science.
  • K-State Research & Extension
    • K-State Research and Extension is a partnership between Kansas State University and the federal, state, and county governments. Research completed is used by extension agents and others to help solve community issues.
  • Sequencing and Genotyping Facility
    • We use an Applied Biosystems 3730 DNA Analyzer for sequencing. It has the capacity to analyze 96 samples every 4 hrs and get 750-900 bases per sample. That’s over 48,000 bases of DNA per run. It is fully automated and can analyze 4-96 well plates without human intervention. At full capacity, it can obtain more than 300,000 bases of DNA per day.
  • Wheat Genetics Resource Center
    • The WGRC has three main missions to assure future advances in wheat breeding:

      • collect, conserve, and utilize germplasm in crop improvement for sustainable production by broadening the crop genetic base,
      • create and promote the free exchange of materials, technology, and new knowledge in genetics and biotechnology among the world's public and private organizations, and
      • sponsor graduate and postgraduate students and visiting scientists for academic training and advanced research in the WGRC laboratories.
