Ruthie Angelovici is an Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator at the University of Missouri. She received the BARD Postdoctoral Fellowship between 2010 and 2012, honored the Chair of the Plant Metabolic Engineering Gordon Research Seminar in 2013, and received the Postdoctoral Independent Career Potential Award in 2015.

Research Focus

My primary research aims are to uncover the metabolic and genetic mechanisms driving the AA network’s response to multiple cellular demands and to environmental changes as well as to understand the evolutionary forces and developmental constraints that shaped them. To this end, my lab is focused on dissection of the genetic architecture that underlies the natural variation of seed AA related traits across multiple species under various environmental conditions and to evaluate their evolutionary context.

To achieve these goals, we employ GWAS and classical linkage mapping combined with molecular and genetic approaches, functional genomics, and bioinformatics. My lab’s long-term goals are to be able to model the genetic and metabolic response of the AA network to different abiotic stresses.

This information will provide the basis for genetic improvement through both transgenic approaches and classical breeding programs to ensure sustainable high quality seed.
