Tom Owens is an Associate Professor in the School of Integrative Plant Science. He received his doctorate from Cornell University in 1985.
In research, I am involved in a collaborative projects looking at the effects of polyploidy on photosynthetic capacity in the genus Glycine (with Jeff Doyle). These studies will have critical implications for the long standing efforts (largely unsuccessful) to produce plants with higher photosynthetic capabilities.
