Current Research

My research involves elucidating the genetic basis for the mitochondrial mosaic phenotype in cucumber (Cucumis sativus). Also, I am studying how the Paternal Sorting of Mitochondria (Psm) locus determines which paternal mitochondrion will remain in the progeny, since the mitochondria is paternally transmitted unlike most of the angiosperms that are maternally transmitted.
