Honours projects for 2016
Plant Biotechnology Research Group:

Plant virology – a range of projects is available on virus-plant interactions, for
example Next Generation Sequencing and associated bioinformatics to identify new
plant viruses, how plants defend themselves against plant viruses, generic
technologies for pathogen identification in relation to biosecurity –
For further enquiries, please contact Dr Steve Wylie - [email protected]

Molecular basis of nematode-plant interactions – what effectors do nematodes use
to overcome plant defences, new biotech strategies for nematode control?
For further enquiries, please contact Prof Mike Jones - [email protected]

Molecular basis of aphid-plant interactions - what effectors do aphids use to
overcome plant defences, new biotech strategies for aphid control?
For further enquiries, please contact Prof Mike Jones - [email protected]
