Kort presentation

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

Research on plant identification using molecular barcoding in our lab focuses on the huge potential it has for biodiversity, conservation, and monitoring of trade. We apply DNA barcoding to identify plants in authentication of herbal pharmaceuticals, wildlife forensics, horticulture and tropical timber trade.

Biografi

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

From a background in systematic botany, organic chemistry, genetics, I research molecular identification of plants, wildlife trade, and medicinal plants.

Research in my group focuses on:

1) Molecular identification of processed plant products in trade, specifically of medicinal plant species susceptible to adulteration, overharvested and endangered taxa, and monitoring of cross-border trade in CITES-listed species.

2) Combining chloroplast genome data and de novo next-gen generated chloroplast genomes, to make more accurate analysis of intra and interspecific genetic variation, with the specific aim of automated species identification

3) Development of specific target-enrichment methods for efficient generation of genetic data from degraded material, such as herbarium collections, and traded and processed material.
