EASTBIO Understanding barley- mycorrhiza interactions to enhance resistance against pathogens

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is the fourth most important arable crop worldwide and second in the UK. Diseases, including those caused by the brown rust pathogen Puccinia hordei, cause barley yield losses of up to 40%. Read more

Improving barley as a sustainable, healthy wholegrain food crop (Ref: CTP-SAI-050)

This project aims to develop spring barley as a sustainable source of healthy wholegrains for the food sector. The UK grows >7m tonnes of spring barley each year, but very little is directly used in food, despite offering potential dietary health benefits. Read more

EASTBIO: Studying DNA resection regulatory mechanisms during meiosis and its application for barley breeding

This fully funded, 4-year PhD project is part of a competition funded by the. BBSRC EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership. Homologous recombination (HR) is a highly conserved process leading to the exchange of genetic material between the homologous maternal and paternal chromosomes during meiosis. Read more
