Blueberry breeding and genetics
Improved blueberry varieties are developed using modern genomic approaches together with traditional breeding.
Disease resistance in tomato and potato
Our research identifies genes and genome sequences involved in virulence and severity of tomato and potato diseases to develop increased resistance in these crops.
... is a new strawberry variety developed within our project to improve strawberry, raspberry and blackberry through genomics and genetics.
Fall cranberry harvest
Our research identifies and characterizes cranberry and blueberry diseases, studies gene expression associated with infection, and identifies sources of disease resistance.
Pepper and tomato breeding
Fruit quality and disease resistance are the goals of this project to produce new varieties and breeding lines.
