The University of Georgia has a major research initiative directed at bioenergy development (seeĀ BESC-CCRC Plant Cell Wall Synthesis and Structure Group). With regards to research devoted to switchgrass, three key areas are being targeted. These are:

  • Biofuel Genomics
  • Plant Breeding: Development of Switchgrass and Other Energy Crops
  • Forage and Biomass Agronomics (FABA) Program

More details on these research initiatives will be available in the coming months.
