Farshad Tamari is a molecular geneticist. He received his honors Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.), Master’s (M.Sc.), and Ph.D. from the Department of Biology at York University in Toronto, Canada. He completed a three year post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Human Genetics and Genomic Sciences at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. He taught and conducted research at Kean University, in Union, New Jersey for two years as a full time faculty member before joining Kingsborough Community College. Farshad Tamari specializes in the molecular genetics of a plant breeding system called distyly and its associated self-incompatibility. The ultimate goal of his research is identification of molecules that confer self-incompatibility and the removal of reproductive barriers. Beyond basic research, his research has implications in increasing yields for commercially valuable plants such as members of primrose which have ornamental value and the promotion of breeding in plants that will be useful in the production of biofuels.
Farshad Tamari teaches Anatomy and Physiology, Human Genetics, Virtual Enterprise Biotechnology, and Introductory Biology at Kingsborough Community College.
