Researcher interests: Application of genetic engineering to plant breeding and physiology. Molecular biology and genetic engineering: specifically, gene expression in transgenic plants. Transposon tagging of polygenes and of agronomically important traits. Genetics and physiology of pepper, tomato, squash and melon, with special emphasis on tomato fruit quality traits, Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) resistance and pepper fruit set under low temperatures. Breeding and production of greenhouse pepper.
