Advanced Research Assistant in the Billker Group looking at the Molecular and Cellular Genetics of Plasmodium Bergehi.
My role is primarily involved in constructing and testing new molecular tools to allow us to further probe P.bergehi biology. Initially I built a range of tagging vectors to extend the range and utilise the modular nature of our targeting vector pipeline. Since then I have produced and adapted of a range of Overexpression, FACS sortable, and Conditional systems to utilise our recombineering approach. I am also involved in the multiplexed, high throughput, growth phenotyping screen of Knock out genes produced in our PlasmoGEM pipeline.
