Assistant Professor, Extension Seed Potato Specialist
Duellman’s research focuses on all aspects of seed potato production, with the overall goal of improving quality. Specific emphasis is on pathogens important to seed potato production and seed health and to seed-related aspects of commercial potato production. Her extension program focuses on providing relevant, timely, science-based, non-biased information to growers and the industry.
Director, Nuclear Seed Potato Program
Durrin’s experience includes plant tissue culture, plant virology and nematology. She has worked with potatoes in a laboratory and greenhouse setting for the past decade. In her current position as director of the Nuclear Seed Potato Program, she maintains tissue culture of over 300 potato varieties including public, private and research lines. She strives to provide seed potato growers and researchers with quality pre-nuclear seed they can rely on.
Extension Pesticide Specialist
Extension Food Processing Specialist
My research focuses on starch chemistry and its influence on human health and functionality. Starch is the major glycemic carbohydrate source for humans, and the final digestion product — dietary glucose, is a major energy source and affects some physiologic responses. Starch is also the major eatable component in crops, such as potato and wheat, and its properties and interaction with another macro- and micro-molecules have a significant impact on crop end-use quality.
