PhD Title: Determination of Insect resistance in Brassica by way of insect feeding behaviour
Supervisors: Professor Brian ford Lloyd and Dr Jeremy Pritchard
This PhD project aims to identify the plant resistance factors against cabbage aphid in varieties of brassica (Brassica oleracea) and its crop wild relatives
Doing PhD, MSc (Analytical Genomics)
I studied Human Genomics during Masters and developed interest in genomic data analysis. I studied for Masters in Analytical genomics at University of Birmingham before starting this PhD.
