Positions in Tomato Functional Genomics
At the Repository for Tomato Genomics Resources, we are working on Tomato Functional Genomics, using TILLING, Insertional Mutagenesis, proteomics, metabolomics approaches to study fruit ripening in tomato. The current aims of the group include using reverse and forward genetics strategies to isolate tomato mutants delayed in ripening, having high lycopene and folate content in tomato fruits and analysis of light and hormonal signal transduction pathways. For recent publications of the group see (Plant Cell Environment Feb 2014 DOI: 10.1111/pce.12279, Plant Physiology 2014 164: 2030-2044; Plant Physiol 2013 161: 2085-2101; Plant Physiol 2011 156: 1424-1438; Molecular Plant 2010 3: 854-869; Plant Methods 2010 6: 3; Plant Methods 2009 5:18!
