We are establishing new strategies for molecular plant breeding, novel approaches to biological control and new tools for enhancing resilience of ecosystems.
We are exploring the relationships between plants, pests and their biological control agents in order to develop and improve natural ways of protecting plants and improving ecosystems.
We are developing innovative tools and principles to study the dynamics of biological invasions and make predictions about future pest, pathogen or weed threats.
We are creating economic value for New Zealand’s plant-based industries by developing new and innovative bioprotection tools and technologies.
A recent study published in PLOS Genetics has helped develop universal rules to predict the genetic changes that occur when hybrid species are formed.
A PhD studentship combining genomics and molecular plant pathology, which will be based at Massey University and Plant & Food Research's School of Horticulture and Food Enterprise.
