From: 1962-1999


Research Interests

The cell biology and cytogenetics of higher plants; specifically the development of commercial fiber in the cotton plant. Currently, the focus is on the relation between cell cycle kinetics, subpopulations of cells, selective expression of regulating developmental factors and fiber production. Methodology includes tissue culture, in situ hybridization and single-cell and chromosomal analyses.
