Research Interests

My project will identify candidate genes and mechanisms of woolly apply aphid (WAA) resistance in apples, the genetic diversity and life cycle of WAA in the UK, and assess how some clones of WAA are able to overcome resistance genes in apple. Ultimately the project will aim to pyramid resistance genes to give resistance to resistance-breaking WAA.

As part of my project, I would like to survey WAA genetic diversity across different regions of the world. Please click here to read more about my project and how you can help by contributing samples.
