EASTBIO Understanding barley-Puccinia interaction: the interaction between pathogen effectors and the host immune system

  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

MSc by Research programme - Regulation of Ideal Plant Architecture in Barley

Plant architecture, or body plan, plays a key role in determining grain yield of crop plants. However, we have little understanding of the molecular genetic basis of architecture in the temperate cereals such as barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), especially in comparison to the warm weather crops such as rice (Oryza sativa). Read more

MSc by Research programme - Jasmonate control of barley development

From the earliest farmers to modern plant breeders, humans have continually modified the body plan of cereals, sometimes drastically, to generate higher grain yields. Read more

MSc by Research programme - A walk on the wild side: unravelling the functional significance of the wild and domesticated barley microbiota

The proposed project will be integrated into our of our long-term efforts to decipher the structure, function and host control of the microbiota inhabiting the rhizosphere, the thin layer of soil adhering to plant roots, and determine its presumed contributions to plant growth and health using barley (Hordeum vulgare) as an experimental model.

MSc by Research programme - Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied. Read more

EASTBIO CASE Molecular engineering of the ubiquitin-proteasome system: A new approach to pathogen resistance in plants

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is the fourth most important 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

High-capacity Anode Materials Using Biomass for Energy Storage (CHAOY_U22SCIO)

Over the past decades rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) have obtained overwhelming commercial dominance in applications. As there is increasing demand for quick charge-discharge of LIBs, high-power density is extremely desirable in the design of electrode materials for the LIBs. Read more

Investigating the potential for re-emergence of wheat stem rust in a changing climate (SAUNDERS_J22DTP)

Wheat stem rust is a notoriously damaging disease of wheat and barley and occurs in most wheat growing areas worldwide. Today, in western Europe the stem rust pathogen, Puccinia graminis f. Read more
