Research Interests

Dr Haseloff works on developing new genetic, optical and software methods for precise monitoring of cell behaviour and engineering of tissues inside living plants. The approaches embrace the principles of Synthetic Biology, with the adoption of techniques for large scale DNA construction, modular parts and computational modelling. The laboratory uses simple algal and lower plant systems for analytical and engineering work. Synthetic Biology has wide-ranging application in the engineering of plant species for bioproduction, with the prospect of wholesale alteration of plant form and biosynthetic properties.
