Plenary Lecture: Philippa Borrill - "The Transcriptome of Polyploid Wheat"

Appels, R. and Varshney, R.K.ORCID: 0000-0002-4562-9131 (2018) Plenary Lecture: Philippa Borrill - "The Transcriptome of Polyploid Wheat". In: Plant and Animal Genome (PAG Asia) Conference 2018, 30 May - 1 June 2018, Seoul, Korea.


Philippa Borrill obtained her PhD from the John Innes Centre (2014). She was subsequently awarded a BBSRC Anniversary Future Leader Fellowship in 2015 which she holds in the Crop Genetics Department at the John Innes Centre. Dr Borrill’s research focuses on understanding the gene networks which control agronomic traits, with a particular interest in senescence which is an important biological determinant of yield and grain nutrient content in cereal crops. Dr Borrill is also involved in developing novel resources to support wheat research. As part of the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium she has contributed to the development of an improved wheat reference genome sequence. This work has facilitated the in-depth understanding of how gene expression varies in polyploids with multiple sub-genomes. Previously Dr Borrill contributed to the creation of sequenced mutant populations in wheat ( and led the development of the atlas and the open access website.
