Research focus is on breeding for resistance against a number of different pathogens using mainly (molecular) genetic approaches. Research covers all aspects related to resistance breeding including major resistance genes, quantitative resistances (QTL) and non host resistance. Identification, isolation and characterization of genes involved, as well as determining and using allelic variation and molecular markers are issues studied. Target areas are insect resistance and fungal resistance.
Crops: potato, tomato, brassica, onion, lettuce, barley.
