Dr. John Burke was featured in a UGA Today news article as being part of an international team that has published the first sunflower genome sequence. This sequence will assist future research programs to help improve crop resilience and oil production. The team published their findings in the journal Nature and you can read it HERE. Nice job, Dr. Burke!
