"We strive to discover novel genetic tools to improve the
agronomic properties of potatoes and tree fruits."


Project Overview

 Harvesting PotatoesSpecific Research Strategies
  • Mobilizing transgenes into potato cultivars to confer resistance to microbial pathogens.
  • Continuous investigation and characterization of agronomically useful genes from wild Solanum species.
  • Application of genomics to citrus improvement.
  • Down-regulation of undesirable glycoalkaloid toxicants and  tuber bruise reactions using antisense or siRNA technology.
 Bill and PaulCharacterization & Distribution of Genetic Resources

We continue to clone and characterize agronomically useful control elements and vectors for use in the research community.

 Gene MapCharacterization & Mapping of Repetitive DNA Elements

We seek to discover important mechanisms involved in gene evolution and function by mapping and characterizing repetitive DNA elements within the genome.
