Media report on development of genomic tools for potato breeding

The Penobscot Bay Pilot, Morning Ag Clips and Potato News Today featured a University of Maine news release highlighting the development of genomic tools for breeding economically important polyploid crops. Greg Porter, a University of Maine professor of crop ecology and management, and E. Han Tan, an assistant professor of plant genetics, will focus on reducing the timeline for development of novel potato cultivars using new genomic tools.
