About

In this laboratory, we are investigating the molecular interactions of parasites and pathogens with their host insects. In particular, our focus is on:


1.     Investigating the role of non-coding RNAs (such as microRNAs) in insect

          biology and host-pathogen interactions, in particular anti-viral

          responses.


2.     Exploring virus encoded genes that are responsible for replication,

          pathogenesis and manipulation of host gene expression machinery.
