My current phD project:

The main focus of my research is to understand the molecular basis of toxin accumulation in common vetch and then use genome editing tools to correct the perturbation and produce zero toxin vetch. Zero toxin, protein rich vetch will be a game changer for the industry! It will allow the grain to be extensively used in new markets, for example as a valuable protein source in the poultry industry, and even human food.

We are currently using second and third generation DNA sequencing technology combined with bioinformatics to understand the molecular basis of toxin accumulation in common vetch. We have some very exciting results that I can't wait to publish!
