Strawberry research


Plant molecular biologist Janet Slavin poses for a portrait among strawberry plants at the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, on Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011. The wild strawberry has been added to the short list of foods whose genomes have been mapped, and scientists say they hope the work will help them produce better strawberries faster than they could with traditional plant breeding.
