I am currently a second year Masters (Biosciences) student in the Fournier-Level lab. My area of research is in herbicide resistance in Lolium rigidum, a weed in Australian farming systems. I have been looking at the viability and efficacy of how a gene drive might be able to reduce the levels of herbicide resistance in the weed population.
In the Fournier-Level lab, we use a combination of both molecular and computational skills. My research is grounded in natural populations of L. rigidum where I sequenced relevant parts of the genome and analysed them to find correlations between genotype and phenotype. This information can then be fed into my R-based model to simulate how a gene drive might progress.
