Professor Chris Bass
Professor of Applied Entomology

Profile

Our group’s research exploits recent advances in transcriptomics, genomics and post-genomic functional approaches to understand adaptive evolution in insects. A significant focus of our work is understanding how insects detoxify the natural and synthetic xenobiotics they encounter in the environment. This includes both plant secondary metabolites and man-made insecticides.
