Overview

Dr Bradley Campbell has over 10 years’ experience in plant biotechnology research and since 2003 has held research positions focused on plant molecular genetics. His research involves the use of genomic tools for crop improvement, with an emphasis on the sustainable production of grain crops. Major focus is on the improvement of crops for food, feed and bio-industrial end-uses. For the past 5 years he has also been involved in hay fever studies, focused on metagenomics of the aerobiome of Australian climates and its links to allergy. Current projects involve the genotyping of the Pacific Islands in vitro taro collection for germplasm preservation and breeding purposes, investigation into infrared spectral cameras and their applicability to taro salinity screening, as well as a comphrehensive bio-geographic analysis of the urban Australian aerobiome and its links to allergic rhinitis.

Research Interests

  • Dr Bradley Campbell
    Genetic improvement of plants using molecular and genomics tools. Assistance in the understanding of allergy and hay fever in Australia via plant metabarcoding.

Research Impacts

- The genotyping of the taro core collection (2020) held by SPC (The Pacific Community) is a linchpin project, central to the conservation of this important traditional crop. The data generated from this project will be a key component to any breeding initiatives.

- Publication of Campbell et al. (2015) in JACI led to the sequencing of the total pollen transcriptome, proteome, and allergome of Johnson Grass a major sub-tropical allergen which led to the filing of a patent for future therapeutic use. US Patent App. 14/899,538; Johnson grass allergenic pollen proteins, encoding nucleic acids and methods of use; J Davies, B Campbell. This work is part of a greater initiative to create treatments for hay fever sufferers who have specific immune responses to tropical allergens.

- Publication of the Mace et al. (2013) Nature Communications paper led to the creation of the sorghum SNP database called SorGSD: http://sorgsd.big.ac.cn/ which is a valuable online web resource for bioinformatics research in cereal genetics.
