Leighton Pritchard


My research centres around plant-pathogen interactions. Primarily, I aim to understand what it is about microbial plant pathogens that enables them to infect plants, and what it is is about plants that allows microbes to cause disease on them. As a computational biologist, most of my work involves the computational and mathematical analysis of biological data such as genome sequences, microarray gene expression profiles, and networks of metabolic and regulatory processes.
