Research Interests
General:
Plant geneticsĀ and genome analysis

Specific:

  • elucidation of the genetics, evolution, reproduction, and patterns and mechanisms of development of Tripsacum, a distant relative of Zea mays ssp. mays (modern maize), utilizing maize as a model system
  • utilization of Tripsacum as a genetic resource for maize disease resistance genes and an alternative food source
  • current techniques used include those of molecular biology/genetics (RFLP, RAPD/PCR, DAMD/PCR) and classical genetics, and comparative genome analyses
