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:
- Molecular genetics and integrated functional genomics of plant adaptation to stress environments (drought, flooding, salinity and high temperature).
- 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).
- Development and application of genomics-assisted breeding strategies for crop improvement.
