A/Prof Murray researchs the evolution, phylogenetics and molecular ecology of marine microbial eukaryotes. Marine biotoxins produced by dinoflagellates, a group of marine microalgae, are amongst the most toxic substances yet recorded and can have severe detrimental impacts on a diverse range of organisms and marine ecosystems. I develop genetic tools for the monitoring of biotoxins based on the unique genetic processes of dinoflagellates, and investigate the diversity and ecology of the producing organisms.
