CAREER IMPACTS AND INNOVATIONS
The research project focuses are on peanut genomics, and the long-term goal of peanut research at Tuskegee University is to improve peanut production by contributing genetic and genomic tools, with an emphasis on discovery of peanut resistance genes and transfer of such genes to pre-adapted elite cultivars of peanut of importance to U.S. agriculture. The peanut research activities at Tuskegee can have a significant impact on development of genetic markers, comparative genomes among legume crops, and the infrastructure of peanut genetic and genomic research.
