Our laboratory conducts research on the development and use of technology for crop genetic engineering and genome editing. The lab members also use molecular markers as a tool for transgene deployment, work in gene discovery, and study insect resistance. We are part of the Department of Crop & Soil Sciences and the Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics at The University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia.
