PhD projects

Lindsey Jane Leach’s work involves using statistical genetics and bioinformatic approaches to dissecting the genetic architecture of quantitative trait variation. She is interested in developing novel methodological and analytical approaches to integrate next generation sequencing technologies with theoretical and empirical studies of complex trait genetics.

Her work also focuses on the evolution of polyploid species that have multiple copies of the genome. The polyploid state creates sophisticated patterns of chromosome behaviour and thus inheritance, posing a major challenge to genetic analyses in these species. Many of the world's most important food crops are polyploids and thus progress in this area is thus essential for meeting the challenge of global food security.
