Susan Bush
Post-doctoral researcher
University of California Davis
1 Shields Avenue
Davis, CA, USA

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Julin Maloof's lab where I am learning about tomato genetics. I am working on a project grounded in the tomato shade avoidance response and also involving the relationship and differences between domesticated varieties and wild species of tomato.
