I am actively involved in the deployment of molecular markers to desirable traits in our bean breeding program in Uganda. In addition, we are also characterizing various pathogens of beans of beans with a view of assessing their diversity using molecular methods. I am also passionate about research and I am intrigued by the effect of plant microbes especially foliar and soil fungi on the physiological processes of a plant. I believe the microbes impact resistant and susceptible genotypes differently and this presents an opportunity for the development of selectable markers and identification of QTLs that control a number of physiological responses to both biotic and abiotic stressors.
