GSR Plant Genetics, UC Davis IFAL 12/1 deadline

From the UC Davis Institute for Food and Agricultural Literacy (IFAL):

50% GSR Plant Genetics (Winter and Spring 2018)

Position Description:
The GSR will review and summarize recent surveys and information on the needs of the organic vegetable and fruit crop sector, determine if the targets have a genetic solution, and for those, discuss the possible application of CRISPR technologies to deliver improved cultivars. The review will include the West Coast of the U.S. with a focus on the Central Valley of California. The GSR will compile the findings from the literature review into a publishable paper as well as a more informal op-ed and presentations, as appropriate. We anticipate the results will be used to launch breeding projects to develop new varieties for organic and conventional farmers and improved products for consumers. Open to graduate students (MS or PhD Candidates).
