Understanding the molecular basis of plant response to organic versus conventional fertilizer using a metatranscriptomic approach

This project addresses breeding, varietal selection, management practices, processing, or marketing practices to increase food quality, nutrition, safety or access.In a previous study, we demonstrated…

Understanding the molecular basis of phytonutrient composition differences in organic tomatoes via quantitative transcriptome analysis

In an ongoing BIOAg supported study, it has been shown that tomatoes grown with organic nitrogen sources had higher phytonutrient contents than those fertilized with…

Phytonutrients and Genomics of Organic Tomatoes: Soil Fertility and/or Plant Defense

In previous studies, we showed that apples, strawberries, and tomatoes grown with organic nitrogen fertilizer sources had higher phytochemical contents than those fertilized with readily…
