Hi, welcome to my ePortfolio. I am a PhD student at Warwick HRI which is a plant and enviromental research department of the University of Warwick. I am supervised by Dr. Roy Kennedy and my PhD project is Development of molecular approaches in the study of lettuce downy mildew (Bremia lactucae) population biology. I have my MSc in 'Applied Biomolecular Technology degree from the University of Nottingham' and BSc in Biotechnology from South China Agricultural University.
 
 
 

button About My Research


B. lactucae is an obligate biotroph which classified as an Oomyctete within the Stramenopiles. It occurs worldwide and is a serious disease of glasshouse-protected and field-grown lettuces. The overall aim of the project is to develop and use molecular methods to study mechanisms which change population structure in B. lactucae on lettuce within agricultural ecosystems. An important area is to develop molecular markers for epidemiological studies and compare these with existing method for differentiating B. lactucae race.
