Alex Litvin’s MS research on drought effects on elongation of tomato published

The research of former MS student Alex Litvin was published in the Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science. Alex, under the guidance of Drs. Anish Malladi and Marc van Iersel, studied the effect of drought stress on gibberellin-related gene expression and elongation of tomato. You can download a PDF of the manuscript from the link below. Alex is now a PhD student at Iowa State University, working with Dr. Chis Currey.
