Evolutionary-Developmental Genetics
Postdoctoral Associate
A postdoctoral position is available to work on the molecular and 
developmental basis of the evolution of plant architecture in maize 
and its ancestor, teosinte.  The project involves an analysis of the 
teosinte branched (tb1) gene [see Genetics 141, 333-346 (1995); 
Nature 386, 485-488 (1997)]. The project has two components.  The 
first involves the analysis of a series of intragenic recombinants 
between a maize and a teosinte allele of tb1 and the study of the tb1 
genic region using BAC clones.  The recombinant alleles will be used 
to map the genic regions that confer the different phenotypes of 
maize and teosinte.  The second component will study the 
developmental genetics of the maize and teosinte alleles of tb1 using 
transformation of maize with chimeric maize-teosinte tb1 constructs, 
tissue in situ hybridization, and other approaches.  This project is 
funded for three years.  To apply, send a statement of research 
interests, curriculum vitae, and the names, e-mail addresses and 
phone numbers of three references to John Doebley, Genetics 
Department, University of Wisconsin, Madison WI 53706 
(jdoebley at facstaff.wisc.edu).
