Functional Genomics and Genetic Improvement of Potato Traits
The Seed Potato Research Team is a group of dedicated potato researchers who are committed to improving the quality of seed potatoes. We work closely with potato growers and breeders to develop new, improved and disease-resistant varieties of potatoes that produce higher yields of potatoes with superior flavors. Our research encompasses all aspects of potato production, from field management practices to post-harvest processing and storage. Our ultimate goal is to provide the potato industry with the knowledge and tools necessary to produce the best possible potatoes for consumers.
