Peppermint and spearmint are important specialty crops because of their aromatic oils. However, they are difficult to study because their genomes are highly complex. We study close relatives with simpler genomes in order to learn about key mint genes.

Our goal is to help find a solution to a devastating mint disease: Verticillium wilt.
