Dr. Veilleux researches the genetic improvement of horticultural crops, with emphasis on genomics of potato. Using the draft genome of potato sequenced using a homozygous doubled monoploid, his lab is comparing it to the genomes of other homozygous potato clones as research approaches the sequence of the more complex heterozygous cultivated types.
