Legume genetics research @ UTas
News, Views & Muse
Jim attempts to provide research leadership and adequate supervision, keep his less realistic ideas in check, and occasionally write a paper or two.
Jak recently joined our Pulse Phenology project and provides us with badly-needed genomic and bioinformatics expertise.
Chantelle is exploring the genetics of common bean development but has wider interests in flowering time mechanisms and their evolution
Kelsey is helping extend our toolkit of molecular techniques, while also trying to drag our communications into the 21st century.
Senior Postdoctoral Researcher
Valerie works on legume FTs, is our go-to person for lab techniques, makes sure the labs are running properly, and keeps the sales reps honest.
Bea has been looking at the roles of various photoperiod response genes in pea and Medicago.
Senior Research Assistant
Jackie's extreme multi-tasking across glasshouse, lab and admin keeps the group functioning!
Yang is interested in agriculture and genetics and is getting to know lentils (and Tasmania...)
Raul has just (re-) joined the group to co-ordinate our molecular genetic work on pulse phenology in lab and glasshouse.
Andy's working on the legume circadian clock, bringing a deep knowledge of the literature and master technical troubleshooting abilities…
Laura is wrestling with the genetics of flowering time in pulses and keeps our feet on the ground with her pulse breeding and field trial experience.
Memoona is investigating flowering time genes in pea and Medicago
