About This Project
I'm studying an important medicinal plant in the citrus family, commonly known as Jaborandi(Pilocarpus). Compounds from the leaves of this plant are used medicinally for glaucoma as well as to induce sweating, salivation, and urination. Sequencing the full genome across multiple populations will be a very important resource and will advance progress toward a better understanding of the biosynthesis of compounds in this genus as well as the population structure, aiding in conservation.
