Henry T. Nguyen




Division of Plant Science and Technology

Henry Nguyen has a research program in molecular genetics, genomics, and biotechnology. His long standing research interest is abiotic stress adaptation and tolerance in plants with a current emphasis on soybean. Specific research areas include:

  1. Molecular genetics and integrated functional genomics of plant adaptation to stress environments (drought, flooding, salinity and high temperature).
  2. Application of contemporary genetic and genomic technologies to studying genome variation and inheritance of complex traits in plants (stress adaptation, disease resistance, and value-added seed composition).
  3. Development and application of genomics-assisted breeding strategies for crop improvement.
