Exploring the latest in crop parasites & biotech


I’m a lecturer in molecular biology / parasitology, and former Leverhulme Trust early career fellow at Queens University Belfast. This blog will focus on the exciting role that genetic engineering can play in tackling global challenges in health and agriculture. It may also dip into more specific interests of my research group, which is focused on plant-parasite interactions, understanding the parasite host-finding response, and developing new methods of control – at least some of which will rely on genetic engineering…
