Plant Sciences


My name is Ian Thompson, and I’m a Ph.D. student working with Dr. E. Charles Brummer. I’m interested in all things plant breeding and plant genetics, but I’m especially interested in the techniques and technologies that make the plant breeding process more effective and efficient. Before coming to UC Davis I was a crop science major at Cal Poly SLO and a melon breeding intern at HM Clause.
