Date palms are the most significant food crop in the Middle East and North Africa and are one of the few crop species that thrive in hot and dry environments. How did this important food crop evolve? Where did they come from? What are the genes that make different date palm varieties unique? This talk explores the evolution and genetics of date palms as uncovered by research at the NYU Abu Dhabi Center for Genomics and Systems Biology.
Speakers Michael Purugganan, Dorothy Schiff Professor of Genomics; Professor of Biology, NYU
