Jeff Endelman is an Associate Professor in the Department of Plant and Agroecosystem Sciences and a member of the graduate program in Plant Breeding and Plant Genetics. He leads the potato variety development program for the university, which releases new varieties for the chip, French fry, and fresh markets. Current research interests include genomics-assisted breeding methods for autotetraploids, the genetics of periderm-related traits (including skin color, set, and finish), and the development of inbred-hybrid breeding systems in diploid potato. Endelman teaches an undergraduate course on genetically modified crops and graduate courses on topics in molecular and statistical genetics
