My work within the TSL to date has primarily focused on the adaption and implementation of the Golden Gate modular cloning system.

In addition to this however, I have also generated various DNA constructs which the Synthetic Biology team hopes will push the currently accepted/known boundaries of the use of Synthetic Biology within the field of plant sciences.
