Owen McCorkelle Research Officer, Biochemistry

I am involved in the research of the interactions between plant defense proteins and fungal pathogens, both in vitro and in planta. I have experience with standard molecular techniques including immunoassays (ELISA, Westerns), various protein quantification assays, plant tissue culture, transient and stable plant transformation and their subsequent analysis (protein expression and quantification, host/pathogen assays) and bacterial vector construction. I have more recently been involved in Mass Spectrometry based proteomics experiments examining these fungal/protein interactions.
