Hakim Weatherspoon appointed Associate Director of $25M Center for Research on Programmable Plant Systems

By Krishna Ramanujan for the Cornell Chronicle.

A new multi-institution, transdisciplinary center will develop systems for two-way communication with plants, allowing scientists to remotely sense a plant’s biology and its immediate ecosystem, in hopes of one day using the information to improve plant growth.

The new Center for Research on Programmable Plant Systems (CROPPS), funded by a five-year, $25 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, aims to grow a new field called digital biology.
