Welcome to the Plant Single Cell Laboratory at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln directed by Associate Professor Marc Libault. Working on single plant cells, the laboratory investigates the genomic and epigenomic regulation of gene expression in response to various abiotic and biotic stresses.
Specifically, applying modern functional genomic and nucleic acid sequencing tools, we are characterizing the interactions between transcription factors and the genomic DNA, the regulation and function of small RNAs on gene transcription. The various projects developed in the laboratory can be accessed by clicking on the “Projects” and “Publications".

Nebraska plant scientist digs deeper into soybeans and soil bacteria
Nebraska's Marc Libault, who received a Faculty Early Career Development Program award from the National Science Foundation, seeks to better understand soybeans and other legumes’ mutually beneficial relationship with the bacteria rhizobia. His research may lead to a reduction in the need for costly fertilizers.
