Our principal interest is genetic improvement of biodiesel feedstock plants. We focus on floral sex determination, flower and seed development, and oil biosynthesis in Jatropha curcas. Our goal is to improve Jatropha seed yield and oil content through genomic and genetic engineering approaches, and to develop Jatropha as a model plant for energy plant research.
