Pat Heslop-Harrison: exploitation of the biology of the cell nucleus: function and interactions of its components, its diversity, evolution, expression, recombination and segregation of DNA. Genomics, genetics, plant breeding, biodiversity and domestication for food security particularly in developing countries (GCFR. ODA) with biotic and abiotic stress responses. Key methods include cell biology, molecular cytogenetics, comparative genomics, DNA sequence analysis/bioinformatics, quantitative genetics, hybridization and modelling approaches. Major and orphan crops, farm animals and model species (Brassica, wheat, banana, sheep, cattle). Social and economic impacts, research evaluation, pedagogy and technological solutions for sustainable agriculture.
