2020 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
His main research concerns Plant virus, Virus, Virology, Potyvirus and Plasmodesma. His work on Furovirus as part of general Plant virus research is frequently linked to Virgaviridae, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Virus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Antibody and Monoclonal antibody.
A large part of his Virology studies is devoted to Potato mop-top virus. His work focuses on many connections between Potyvirus and other disciplines, such as Tobacco mosaic virus, that overlap with his field of interest in RNA and Nepovirus. As part of the same scientific family, Lesley Torrance usually focuses on Cell biology, concentrating on Green fluorescent protein and intersecting with Transport protein.
His primary areas of study are Virology, Virus, Plant virus, Molecular biology and Monoclonal antibody. The study incorporates disciplines such as Antiserum and Antibody in addition to Virology. His studies deal with areas such as RNA and Immunogold labelling as well as Virus.
His Plant virus study improves the overall literature in Genetics. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Recombinant DNA, Fusion protein, Epitope, Phage display and Polyclonal antibodies. As a part of the same scientific study, Lesley Torrance usually deals with the Monoclonal antibody, concentrating on Serology and frequently concerns with Serotype.
His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Virus, Ploidy, Cell biology and Biotechnology. He works mostly in the field of Genetics, limiting it down to topics relating to Cultivar and, in certain cases, Viral evolution, Aphid, Staple food and Crop. His work in Virus detection and Plant virus is related to Virus.
His Ploidy study combines topics in areas such as Solanum tuberosum, Major gene, Genetic marker, Introgression and Locus. His work deals with themes such as Bimolecular fluorescence complementation, Gene and Potato mop-top virus, which intersect with Cell biology. His work in Potato mop-top virus addresses subjects such as Plasmodesma, which are connected to disciplines such as Movement protein and Nicotiana benthamiana.
