Dr JANA FRIEDRICH
Insect Molecular Biologist
Protecting Crops and the Environment
Jana is a Project Leader focusing on insect genome editing strategies for the management of insect pests. Insects are considered pests when they cause damage to agricultural produce, thereby reducing the yield and/or quality of the product. Jana’s aim is to develop state-of-the-art CRISPR gene editing and RNAi approaches as applications to maintain pest population levels below those causing economic injury.
