Professor Chris Franklin

Professor Chris Franklin

Professor of Plant Molecular Biology
Deputy Head of School of Biosciences

School of Biosciences

Chris Franklin is a leading expert on meiosis in plants. Work in his laboratory has made a major contribution to the understanding of how meiotic recombination is controlled in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. This knowledge is currently being transferred to crop species where the ability to modify genetic recombination will help plant breeders develop the new varieties that will be needed ...
