Staff Profile:Dr Andrew Goodall

Dr Andrew Goodall
Job Title:
Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Plant Molecular Biology
Areas of Interest:

I am a plant molecular biologist with experience working in plant nutrition, particularly with crop species. I am interested in the transcriptional responses of plants to nutritional deficiencies and the way that these responses can be exploited to produce plants with beneficial traits. I am interested in the use of technology to optimise plant nutritional responses to provide additional food security, either through improvements to yield or resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses.

I completed my PhD in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Alyson Tobin at the University of St Andrews. The focus of my work was upon the identification and expression analyses of three novel isoforms of cytosolic glutamine synthetase in barley. This enzyme is particularly important as it represents a bottleneck in the ammonium assimilation pathway. I examined the temporal and spatial patterns of expression of each isoform and characterised their response to varying nitrogen treatments. (Goodall et al., 2013).

I am currently involved with a project investigating the role of phosphorus cycling in the environment with Dr, John Hammond at the University of Reading and teams at the University of Warwick and at Cranfield University. The aim of the project is to better understand the roles of soil-microbe-plant interactions on P cycling in the rhizosphere of crops in agri-ecosystems, using combined genomic and proteomic approaches.
