Genetic Network Underpinning Barley Vascular Development

This project investigates whether the genetic network underpinning vascular development in dicotyledon Arabidopsis thaliana is conserved in monocotyledon crops using the model cereal Barley. Work includes both bioinformatic and laboratory techniques, laid out in two separate sections in the report.

My expertise is in molecular genetics, specifically genetic engineering techniques with plants. I also have some experience with plant physiological research and bioinformatics in coexpression analysis and orthologue identification between species. My interests include both the fields of evolutionary and molecular genetics, and I minor in physical and human geography in my degree. In future I hope to continue genetic research, aspiring for that which explores links between genetic research, the environment/climate, food security and disease eradication.
