Ionomics: Using Molecular Phenotypes to Dissect the Complex Interactions Between Plant Genetics and the Environment

USDA-ARS/Danforth Center


Ivan Baxter is a research computational biologist with the USDA-ARS located at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. He received a BA in Chemistry from Goucher College, a Ph. D in Molecular and Cellular Structure and Chemistry from The Scripps Research Institute and did postdoctoral research in elemental accumulation at Purdue University. His lab uses high throughput elemental profiling and phenotyping to understand how crop and model plants adapt to their environment.
