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.

Flic is leaving the lab after 2.5 years! Flic has worked on riboviz bioinformatics, directly supervised several student projects, taught data skills as a Carpentries instructor, including with Ed-DaSH.

Flic’s next step is a PhD studying research software practice at epcc. We will miss her, but she will not be far away.
