Aimee's background encompasses clinical molecular microbiology, environmental bacteriology and mycology, in addition to plant biology of agricultural significance. Of importance, Aimee has tested and developed Illumina 16S rRNA gene sequencing and community fingerprinting for the routine screening of lung bacterial microbiota. She has also employed Illumina whole genome sequencing to better-characterise Achromobacter species through phylogenomics, pangenome analysis, SNP analysis, antimicrobial resistance and its virulence. In contrast, Aimee has exploited genome mining to determine the biosynthetic potential of both non-pathogenic and pathogenic bacteria. Aimee is also familiar with the analysis of transcriptomic data and qPCR data through studying climatic effects on forage grass gene expression. Aimee's key duties at WGP involves QC of sequence data in addition to bespoke analysis of NGS data.
