Dr Anna Kuballa

Dr Anna Kuballa completed her PhD at the University of Queensland investigating novel genes associated with crustacean moulting and exoskeletal formation. Her research involves the use of invertebrate models such as crustaceans and molluscs to study the process of biomineralisation, with an emphasis on molecular control studying differential gene expression through molecular techniques such as microarrays, transcriptomics and quantitative PCR.
