Proceedings of the Taiwan-USA Symposium on Technology of Cultivation and Molecular Breeding for Ornamental Crops
At The University of Florida, we now have a critical mass of interdisciplinary researchers focused on delivering new varieties of plants that appeal to the senses of consumers. This unique combination of expertise allows us to 1) understand consumer preferences for different horticultural crops and plant characters and 2) determine the biochemical, physiological and molecular basis of these characters. We utilize information gained in these experiments to guide the development of new varieties of flowering plants, fruits and vegetables – a process we refer to as ‘Consumer-Assisted Selection’. At the present time, our main focus is directed toward making flowers the smell better for the nest generation of consumers of floriculture crops.
