Mr Elliott Atkins

Plant Tissue Culture Laboratory Technician
Tissue Culture & Transformation

Throughout my Bachelor degree plant biology has been my main area of interest. I focused on CAM plant physiology, but with my move to The Sainsbury Laboratory I have decided to expand my experience into other areas of plant research.

I am a member of the Plant Tissue Culture team, which provides a plant transformation service to The Sainsbury Laboratory. Primarily I manage Arabidopsis thaliana transformations, but I am also involved in the transformations of other plant species and barley & Arabidopsis optimisation experiments. Since beginning this position I have been developing a new database for the Arabidopsis transformation programme.
