About Me


Overview of Research Projects

Our laboratory carries out molecular genetic research, mostly in plants of the Cucurbitaceae family. We have analyzed the melon and cucumber genomes using mapping approaches, and investigated the interaction of these plants with pathogens and insects. We also studied sex differentiation and fruit set in cucumbers at the molecular level. Our projects ask genetic and developmental-genetic questions on plant reproduction, and on disease resistance genes, and yield biotechnological assets in the form of diagnostic DNA markers to assist breeding, and cloned genes of biotechnological interest.
