Keywords: Pistachio Bushy Top, In Vitro Culture, Marker Assisted Selection

I primarily do in vitro culture, embryo culture, and embryo rescue of pistachio hybrid rootstock. I also dabble in other nut crop rootstock cultures to keep myself entertained. I like to spend my time taking long sits at the bench, torturing my eyes with red LED lighting, and cooking things in my science pressure cooker.
