 Research Interests
Research in Lisa Ainsworth's lab applies physiological, biochemical, and genomic tools to understand the mechanisms of plant responses to global atmospheric change and environmental stress. Current research quantifies genetic variation in response to elevated carbon dioxide and ozone concentrations among diverse crop lines in the field, identifies the genes and gene networks underpinning the ozone response in crops, and studies the interactions of drought, temperature, CO2 and ozone stress. Research also aims to identify genetic variation in photosynthesis at the leaf and canopy level in diverse food and energy crops.
