Plant breeders are challenged with sustaining global crop improvements. Is there a limit to crop yield?

Our lab is addressing this question using three favorite plants: tomatoes, Lisianthus and autotetraploid roses.  By integrating in a single web-based platform a broad germplasm base, deep ontology defined phenotypes, and multiple genome sequences we identify genes and mechanisms that dictate crop productivity.
