Fields of study
Many plants degenerate and die rather suddenly toward the end of their reproductive phase. In soybeans, the developing seeds trigger this senescence process which appears to limit seed yield. Dr. Noodén's group aims to determine the control mechanisms and some of the key physiological changes which cause whole plant senescence. Because of its advantages in genetic analyses, they are also developing Arabidopsis thaliana as a system for studying senescence, and they are getting senescence mutations. Currently, he is studying the genetic and light controls of senescence and seed development.
Noodén received his Ph.D. degree from Harvard University in 1963. He was an NIH Special Research Fellow at CalTech in 1971-72 and a Fulbright Senior Research Fellow at Australian National University in 1983.
