CRISPR/Cas mediated chromosome engineering in Arabidopsis

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
CRISPR/Cas has emerged as a flexible tool for genome editing in complex eukaryotes. It has been widely used for targeted mutagenesis and DNA repair as well more sophisticated approaches utilising the specificity of guide RNAs to target Cas9-tagged proteins. Read more

EASTBIO: Understanding how plant pathogen effector proteins contribute to host range and nonhost disease resistance

Crop diseases destroy more than 25 % of our food each year. Protecting crops with pesticides represents a considerable financial and environmental challenge. To develop new strategies to combat disease it is important to understand the molecular and cell biology of how microbial plant pathogens cause disease.  .

Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis

The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology. Read more

Engineering plants tolerant to high temperatures

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

EASTBIO: Deciphering the role of translation in temperature-controlled development

Project Description for Find-A-PhD Advert (max 400 words). This will be the text that is advertised to prospective students. Ambient temperature has profound effects on almost all aspects of plant development, from the onset of seed germination and seedling establishment to flower and fruit production. Read more

How does the metabolic status of the plant regulate embryo development and seed viability?

This project will discover how carbohydrate availability regulates embryo development and seed viability in Arabidopsis. Seed growth depends on the interplay between developmental/genetic programmes and carbohydrate supply from the maternal plant. Read more

Reducing food waste through photomanipulation of leaf senescence

Sustainably enhancing the quality and shelf-life of fresh produce is a major objective for the horticulture industry. One way in which this can be achieved is by delaying senescence-induced chlorophyll breakdown. Read more
