Our team has over 140 peer-reviewed publications in plant genetics with 23 of those in the world’s top journals Nature, Science, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. This has culminated in >10,000 citations, which is a testament to the incredible influence and novelty of our research.

FOUR KEY AREAS OF RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
We believe that by focusing on improvement in the molecular (kinetic) mechanisms of photosynthesis and cellulose biosynthesis we’ll enhance, not only growth, but overall plant health.
For the moment our goal is to improve the resistance to Fusarium head blight (FHB) in Durum wheat. Our approach is forward genetic screens using not-so-classical mutagenesis.
We’re primary focussed on discovering novel herbicide tolerant mechanisms for several different chemistries of well known herbicidal classes. Our research in this field has resulted in some surprising findings with applications in global commercial markets.
Frontier’s very first discovery was an allele that lead to a 50% increase in water-use-efficiency. We’ve since developed a highly sophisticated non-GMO forward chemical genetics screen (first tested in durum wheat) to identify new varieties in various crops
