     Welcome!

Our lab focuses on the post-harvest physiology of potato tubers. Areas of emphasis include tuber water relations, carbohydrate metabolism, and physiological age. Experiments are conducted at the molecular, cellular, whole tuber, and commercial-storage levels. Our long-term goals are to gain a more detailed understanding of potato physiology and to identify specific molecular and cellular events that predict or influence the marketability of stored potatoes.
