Rachel A Burton

I am currently a Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls, based at the University of Adelaide. I undertook my PhD at the John Innes Centre, Norwich. My expertise is in the areas of plant molecular biology particularly as it relates to cell wall biosynthesis, re-modeling and degradation and how these impact cereal end use quality. I also have an interest in the development and application of novel experimental methods for transcript profiling and gene discovery.
