Research Interests

GARNetis a BBSRC sponsored network set up to support Arabidopsis and the wider plant community. GARNet aims to ensure that the full impact of the excellent UK plant science base is realised by acting as an information hub, point of contact for researchers and funding agencies, promoting interactions between fundamental and applied plant science and to increase opportunities for UK plant science at the international level.

I am assisted in my role as GARNet coordinator by the GARNet Liaison Officer Irene Lavagi
