Dr. Addie M. Thompson received her PhD from the University of Minnesota. Prior to joining the faculty at MSU, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota and at Purdue University.
The Thompson lab studies maize genetics and genomics; quantitative genetics; plant morphology; drought stress; high-throughput phenotyping. At the most broad level, her lab is interested in studying maize, and how different genotypes grow in different environments. They use many technologies and approaches to investigate this area, from quantitative genetics to phenomics to statistical and physiological modeling. Emphasis is placed on addressing biologically meaningful and agriculturally relevant questions, with both domestic and international potential applications.
