Texas geneticist gets cotton award

Dr. Norma Trolinder, a pioneering cotton research geneticist in west Texas, is the recipient of the 2000 Cotton Genetics Research Award.

The announcement was made in Annaheim, Calif. She received $500 in recognition of her excellent work.

U.S. commercial cotton breeders have presented the Cotton Genetics Research Award for the past 38 years to a scientist for outstanding basic research in cotton genetics. The Joint Cotton Breeding Policy Committee comprised of representatives from state experiment stations, USDA, private breeders and the NCC establishes criteria for the award.

Dr. Don Keim, senior Mid-South cotton breeder with Delta & Pine Land Company and one of Trolinder's nominators, said Dr. Trolinder's “diligent efforts in the difficult area of plant regeneration from cotton tissue culture overcame a major hurdle in cotton biotechnology. Her work was essential to the successful utilization of transgenic cotton.”
