(Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) The University of Illinois and the Partner Institute for Computational Biology in Shanghai developed a computer model to predict the yield of different crop cultivars in a multitude of planting conditions. Published in BioEnergy Research, the model depicts the growth of 3-D plants, incorporating models of the biochemical and biophysical processes that underlie productivity.
