Dr Kelvin Khoo
Sciences, Engineering and Technology Faculty Office
Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology
Currently employed as a Research Technical Services officer specifically dealing with biosecurity compliance at the Waite Campus.
Kelvin previously worked on developing DNA-based molecular markers for marker-assisted selection of genetic biotic resistance loci in wheat and barley. He also performed genetic research relating to the fine-mapping of resistance QTL against root-lesion nematode in chickpea.
During his Ph.D, Kelvin investigated proteins that were involved in the early stages of chromosome pairing in allohexaploid breadwheat. In doing so, he gained significant experience in the field of proteomics.
