About Dr Peter Bundock

Research Fellow Dr Peter Bundock BSc(Hons)(NE), PhD(UTAS)
Peter studied for a B.Sc. degree at the University of New England and completed an Honours year in the Biochemistry Department. He then worked at Monash University in the Genetics Department on transformation of the now famous weed, Arabidopsis thaliana. This was followed by a stint at the University of Western Sydney - Hawkesbury working on IAA biosynthesis in plants. In 1995 he commenced a Ph.D. at the University of Tasmania working on genome mapping and detection of quantitative trait loci (QTL) in Eucalyptus globulus.
Peter's work at Southern Cross Plant Science has included identifying and isolating cytochrome P450 genes from wheat and barley, and detecting and assaying single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in barley genes. [SNPs (pronounced snips) can be utilised as DNA markers to map genes and for selection in breeding programs]. Currently Peter's main work is with the CRC for Sugar Industry Innovation through Biotechnology working on developing SNP markers in sugarcane. Peter also works with the Grain Foods CRC on gene expression in developing wheat grain.
