Şadiye leads the transformation and genome editing of wheat at the John Innes Centre within the Crop Transformation Facility. This role involves collaborations on many different projects, with both internal groups and external institutes and universities. Her interest is innovations in transformation and genome editing technologies to meet specific research goals in wheat. She focusses on innovative strategies to further improve wheat transformation and editing technologies. This includes work to further extend the efficiency of wheat transformation and the range of amenable genotypes; as well as to develop advanced genome editing technologies adapted for use in wheat. Şadiye is also an honorary lecturer at the University of East Anglia, UK.
