Researchers at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) have played an integral role in an international research effort to develop a powerful new tool for strawberry breeders. The launching of this product, called the IStraw90® SNP Array, was announced in a press release by the biotechnology company Affymetrix on October 22, 2013. The IStraw90® SNP Array will enable breeders to assay up to 90,000 chromosomal sites in the complex strawberry genome, allowing breeders to choose plants with desired genetic combinations at a resolution far beyond anything previously possible.

Microbiologists at UNH have received a $716,000 to study the evolution of beneficial microbes by examining the relationship between the Hawaiian bobtail squid and a bacterium that helps it avoid predators by emitting light. Cheryl Whistler and Vaughn Cooper, both associate professors of microbiology and genetics, are the investigators on the three-year grant from the National Science Foundation. Learn more >>>
