Robert Wright, Ph.D.
Associate Professor
Specialty: Cotton Genetics
In my professional career I use a combination of molecular genetics and classical breeding to investigate fundamental questions in genetics, breeding, evolution, and host-pathogen relationships. Contributions from my research have led to the development of both public and proprietary technologies relevant to germplasm improvement and biotechnologies.
