Project title:

Insect host-virus interactions: the role of miRNAs and immunity

Project description:

The interplay between insect hosts and viruses is a complex ecosystem, and our understanding of these interactions informs the vector-control decisions we make. My project utilises Drosophila melanogaster to study how antiviral miRNAs, miPEPs and other factors of insect immunity influence and change the host-virus ecosystem.
