Bio/Research

The research focuses on breeding for resistance to economically important disease and environmental stress constraints of vegetable crops. These goals include the selection of snap beans with resistance to aphid-transmitted viruses, common bean rust, white mold and heat stress, Brassica vegetables with resistance to black rot and heat stress and novel tomato traits. The research includes the adaptation of crops to the Great Lakes Region and tropical/sub-tropical environments, including Sub-Saharan Africa. The research involves multi-state, multi-disciplinary and international collaborations with supporting laboratory techniques including molecular breeding and diagnostics, cellular techniques including flow cytometry, tissue culture and embryo rescue, and a large focus on controlled environment screening.
