  • Plants and microbes


Dr Zoltan Kevei has expertise in the field of plant-microbe interactions (Medicago-Rhizobium), cell cycle regulations and developmental epigenetics of the model plant, Arabidopsis and, since joining Cranfield, in tomato genetics.

Throughout his academic carrier he have gained a solid and broad scientific and technical training in general plant molecular biology. His diverse publication record shows his wide interest in plant research.

Current activities

Z. Kevei is currently working on tomato root-stock mutants, he try to find the causative gene(s) behind important traits. During the genetic mapping of these interesting genes he uses the latest molecular techniques and methods available or recently installed in the Agrifood laboratories, glasshouses.
