Research Interest

  • 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 or 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.
