Keywords: Water stress, QTL Mapping, Crop Improvement
My research focuses on understanding the genetics of water stress tolerance traits in tomato using introgression lines from wild tomato species. I am currently working on QTL mapping water stress tolerant traits on the short arm of chromosome 9 and conducting a combining ability study with introgressions from two different wild species.
