Joe Gage’s research program is focused on linking crop genomic and phenomics to understand how to develop more resilient and productive crop varieties. Current projects include studying how sequence variation controls gene regulation; how gene regulation contributes to genotype-by-environment interactions; and novel methods for processing and interpreting high throughput phenotyping data.

The overall goal of the project is to increase the genetic diversity of maize in farmer's fields through the development of agronomically superior semi-exotic germplasm. Yield and disease evaluations must be conducted in order to identify this superior germplasm, and this funding will help support these evaluations.
