Dr Anna Amtmann

Anna is a plant scientist with expertise in molecular biology and biophysics. Her group investigates the molecular mechanisms that enable plants to tolerate salinity, drought and mineral deficiency. Experimental techniques used in her laboratory include patch clamp, confocal microscopy, microarrays and next-generation sequencing. Current research projects investigate opportunities to improve plant drought tolerance through epigenetic engineering (BBSRC funded) and to develop water desalination technology based on synthetic biology (EPSRC funded).
