We study how organisms respond to their environment, focusing on molecular mechanisms used by fungi. We collect and analyze genome-scale datasets to understand how fungi dynamically reorganize their RNA and protein to adapt to environmental change. This includes how fungi adapt to infect human hosts.

Disambiguation: This is the Edward Wallace Lab studying RNA and Systems Biology in Fungi. It is not to be confused with the Stephen Wallace Lab studying Chemical and Synthetic Biology, also in Edinburgh.

The Wellcome / Royal Society Fellowship that funded research in our group for 6 years, has now ended.

Edward has been appointed a Lecturer in RNA Systems Biology.

New music inspired by our work, The Fungi Sessions Vol.1.

This was a beautiful collaboration with musician Hannah Read, whose father Nick Read was a leading mycologist.
