Emma McHugh

I completed my PhD in 2018 at the University of Melbourne, investigating protein trafficking in the malaria parasite. I then joined the Ralph Lab in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology to study splicing in Plasmodium falciparum. My current interests include bioinformatic analysis of alternative splicing and characterising RNA-decay pathways using CRISPR-based reverse genetics approaches and Illumina RNA-sequencing.
