Lindsey is a Lecturer in Genetics in the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham. Her work focuses on understanding the genetic basis of complex traits in crops and the application of this knowledge for improving crop breeding. Lindsey is passionate about teaching all things genetics and passing on her love for the subject to the next generation of geneticists.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the first annual prize for the best student-led paper in Heredity. The quality of papers was in general very high but the award for this year goes to Donald McKnight, from James Cook University. We would like to thank all of the authors for submitting their research to Heredity and congratulate those contributing to the long- and short-listed papers.
