Blake Meyers, PhD

Member, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center
Professor, Division of Plant Sciences, University of Missouri


Blake’s work focuses on genome-scale studies of RNA and components of RNA silencing pathways, with a recent emphasis on plant reproductive biology and the evolution of plant small RNAs. Blake has been involved with next-generation DNA sequencing since its earliest days, and he has developed a number of applications of this technology, including computational methods, that have had a deep impact on plant genomics.
