My Research

My research aims to utilize traditional breeding methods to develop new maize germplasm inbred lines and corn hybrids with native (non-transgenic) insect and disease resistance. We conduct the breeding work mainly in the field, and studies also include bioassay in the laboratory. My present research project is on observing maize weevils’ development on corn hybrids with varying genetic backgrounds which include sweet corn, BT field corn, and common field corn.
