As part of the Compositae Genome Project, I am involved in the generation of molecularmarkers based on lettuce ESTs in a recombinant inbred line (RIL) population between wildLactuca serriola and cultivated Lactuca sativa cv. Salinas. As a lab, we arecurrently optimising a high-throughput mapping system involving the combined use of the ABI37and Spectrumedix Reveal system as well as standard Agarose gel based procedures.

In addition, I am responsible for the management of lab supplies and monitoring lab safetyprocedures, including radiation safety.
