Hi, I am interested in biotic and abiotic stresses resistance in strawberry plants with increased organoleptic properties in fruits. I addition, I'm interested in organic strawberry cultivation and conducting few trials concerning that.
Here's an opportunity to participate in a workshop to get "hands-on experience and training in plant ecophysiology techniques from leading scientists and manufacturers". Please visit: https://sites.google.com/prod/view/pepg-workshop/Home
For those who are excited about gene editing - here's an article from your's truly, John Clark on "Is Gene Editing the New Horizon for Berry Crop Improvement?" Visit: https://www.growingproduce.com/fruits/is-gene-editing-the-new-horizon-for-berry-crop-improvement/
Folks, let's start talking about Strawberries by writing down what traits you are interested in focusing your breeding program on.
If you are not a strawberry breeder but you love to eat strawberries, please write down what would make you go buy strawberries from the market or why you would want to grow strawberries in your backyard for example.
I am more interested in working on gene editing in the Kiwifruit plant using CRISPR technology. My lab is working on early flowering in Actinidia (Kiwifruit & kiwiberry).
