  • Research Projects
    • Develops and conducts research in plant molecular genetics, including genetic characterization, gene identification, elucidation of molecular mechanism, biochemical function and genomic evaluation, directed at traits of importance to Idaho crops
    • Emphasis of research is on host-pathogen interactions and production of value-added products in plants
