The Canal and River Trust own and manage over 2000 miles of waterways used for a wide range of recreational purposes and which also support a highly important aquatic biodiversity and scarce and rare species of wildlife.
  The agri-diagnostic characterisation of algal cell walls for food and biotechnology use
  Dr J.H. Bothwell
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The overarching aim of this studentship is to characterise how environmental driven cell wall modifications affect the digestibility of edible seaweeds, a novel and promising food source.
