Dr Physilia Chua

Postdoctoral Fellow

Postdoctoral fellow for the BIOSCAN UK flying insects project to document UK insect diversity and discover species interactions

I am working on three complementary components of the BIOSCAN project. To future proof collected insect specimens, our group uses non-destructive DNA extraction techniques coupled with third generation sequencing platforms to achieve our aims.

  1. Document insect diversity in the UK
  2. Investigate insect cobiont interactions including diet, microbiome, and parasites
  3. Adapt amplicon panels made for high-throughput sequencing platforms to portable low-cost sequencer
