Martin’s primary research interest is the evolution of insecticide resistance in the malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae. Through his collaboration with the MalariaGEN Anopheles 1000 Genomes (Ag1000g) Project, Martin and his group are using next-generation sequencing technologies to address aspects of the biology of Anopheles gambiae that impact upon the sustainable control of malaria. This includes Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) to identify genetic loci associated with insecticide resistance and population genetic studies to describe population sub-structuring.
