Our strawberry breeding program aims to release new cultivars of several types: varieties with flavorful fruit for fall production; varieties that can be grown from seed; ornamentals with colorful flowers.
We also develop genomic resources (genetic maps, genome assemblies) and genotyping tools (SNP array, etc.) for implementation of marker-assisted breeding.
