Our group studies wheat genomics and plant innate immunity. We are interested in understanding the molecular basis of plant disease resistance in wheat, a grass that is both amenable to basic research and highly important to agriculture.
Main areas of research are:
1) Development of functional genomic tools for wheat
2) Understanding the fundamental molecular pathways of plant immunity in wheat
3) Isolation of new sources of disease resistance from mutagenized populations
4) Accelerating gene cloning and trait transfer via new genomic technologies
This group is formed by partnership of the Earlham Institute (Triticeae Genomics) and The Sainsbury Laboratory.
