Dr Alison East

Research Interests

Project manager for Synthetic Symbioses, a six-centre research British-American collaboration jointly funded by BBSRC and NSF to engineer nitrogen fixation in bacteria associated with non-leguminous plants.

Bioinformatic analysis of rhizosphere gene expression and imaging of gene expression on plant roots. This is crucial to understanding the spatial and temporal basis for nutrient exchange and signalling in natural and synthetic symbioses.
