Microarray analysis of gene expression

Microarray analysis of gene expression in House Finches induced by experimental infection with the bacterial pathogen Mycoplasma gallisepticum.

Dr Camille Bonneaud
Senior Lecturer in Ecology and Conservation


My work focuses on understanding the molecular underpinnings of adaptation; particularly in systems of relevance for conservation. I currently combine genetic, genomic, transcriptomic and immunological approaches to identify the molecular processes associated with: (1) the evolution of host resistance to pathogens; (2) the expression of pathogen virulence; and (3) population responses to novel selection pressures resulting from deforestation and climate change. I use a variety of model systems, including fish, frogs and birds.

I am a member of the Ecology and Conservation group. For further details, please see Research.
