Professor Greg Smith

Nguyen Ai Hang Tran

PhD Student


Hang Tran has vast knowledge and experience with animal husbandry and molecular techniques. During her training in Vietnam, Hang successfully developed mono-sex technology in freshwater prawns through androgenic gland micro-surgery and gene silencing. Hang will attempt to develop mono-sex technology in spiny lobsters by inducing sex change through gene silencing or chemical/thermal manipulation of the eggs. Hang will expand the scientific knowledge of sexual development pathways in decapods by exploring the sex determining gene iDMY in the ornate spiny lobster male genome and investigate how it regulates key sexual development genes like IAG and vitellogenin.
