The Clemente Lab has established an agriculture biotechnology pipeline at UNL, which enables researchers to evaluate transgenic events from the bench to the field with procedures emphasizing identity preservation and stewardship of the biologicals. This infrastructure was instrumental during development of the dicamba tolerance technology, currently marketed as the Roundup Ready® Xtend cropping system. The research program is actively engaged in a number of transdisciplinary, multi-institutional team-based projects, targeting feedstock development for sustainable aquaculture feeds, designing genetic approaches to protect yield from both biotic and abiotic stresses, along with enhancing phenotypic outcomes of C4 grass feedstocks for the bio-economy.
