The crop science group has strong interest and expertise in crop improvement, biocontrol, bioremediation, and pest management. Our researchers have major interests in understanding the genetics and biochemistry of rice, including the population and evolution of weedy rice. Other areas of focus include food processing and storage, bioactivity of glycyrrhizic acid from licorice, and the use of sago starch to produce value-added materials.
