Sinead Phelan

Post-Doctoral Researcher

Research Interests

At present my research is primarily focused on monitoring the evolution of plant pathogens of importance to Irish wheat, barley and potato crops.

  • Analysis of large collections of Phytophthora infestans, Mycosphaerella graminicola and Rhynchosporium commune for population changes.
  • Fungicide sensitivity characterisation.

Current Projects
