Shelley Jansky is a Research Geneticist with the USDA-Agricultural Research Service Vegetable Crops Research Unit and a Professor in the Department of Horticulture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The Jansky lab focuses on germplasm enhancement for potato genetics and breeding research.  Our mission is three-fold: 1. Evaluate wild and cultivated potato relatives for traits of interest to scientists and the potato industry; 2. Introgress those traits into adapted germplasm for ease of use; 3. Develop germplasm resources for potato breeding and genetics programs. Currently, we are focusing on the creation of recombinant inbred lines at the diploid level.
