The Cotton Biotechnology Group delivers genetic technologies to expedite the development of successful CSIRO cotton cultivars for Australian growers. Our cross-domain expertise spans molecular biology, genomic prediction, microscopy, cell wall biochemistry, functional genomics, disease resistance and synthetic biology.

I recently completed a PhD at the University of Sydney, my research aim was to develop an understanding of the genetic components of flowering behavior and plant development, responsible for the adaptation of wheat to the Australian climate. Research outputs included the identification of genomic regions and markers in the context of integrated multi-gene and cross environment predictive frameworks to enable future wheat breeding efforts.
