Research Assistant Positions in Tomato Functional Genomics
At the Repository of Tomato Genomics Resources, we are working on Tomato Functional Genomics, using TILLING, Insertional Mutagenesis, NGS, proteomics and metabolomics approaches to study fruit ripening in tomato. The current aims of the group include using reverse and forward genetics strategies to isolate tomato mutants delayed in ripening, having high lycopene and folate content in tomato fruits and analysis of light and hormonal signal transduction pathways. For recent publications of the group see (PLoS ONE 11(4): e0152907 and e0153333, 2016, Plant Cell Environment 2014 37: 1688-1702, Plant Physiology 2014 164: 2030-2044; Plant Physiology 2013 161: 2085–2101; Plant Physiology 2011 156: 1424-1438; Molecular Plant 2010 3: 854-869; Plant Methods 2010 6: 3; Plant Methods 2009 5:18).
