Teo Chee How received his Doctor of Philosophy from University of Leicester, United Kingdom where his research was focusing on the distribution and diversity of repetitive DNAs in Musa genome. He was involved in the development of retrotransposon-based molecular markers for Musa species identification. During his stays at University of Leicester, he was involved in the 5th EU framework programme where, together with other partners in the framework, he had developed universal tools to isolate pararetroviruses (EPRVs) and investigate the biodiversity of EPRV sequences. In addition, he successfully established plant artificial minichromosome platform for crop improvement purposes during his post-doctorate period at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK), Gatersleben, Germany. In 2012 he returned to Malaysia to work at Agro-Biotechnology Institute (ABI) under Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) as Senior Research Officer before joining academic as Senior Lecturer at Taylor’s University in 2014.
