barley PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 11 barley PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

MSc by Research: 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: Regulation of 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: 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

MSc by Research: The Generation Gap – understanding tissue communication during grain development

Cereal grain provides more calories than any other source to our diet, making grain production vital to food security. We study grain development in barley, a globally important cereal, and a powerful genetic model system. Read more

Doctoral (PhD) position - impact of biocontrol agents on diseases of ryegrass

Irish agriculture is mainly grassland-based, and is key to the success of the dairy, beef, and sheep sectors. The Irish Climate Action Plan, the EU Green Deal, and the EU Farm to Fork strategy has placed ambitious reduction targets for the use of chemical inputs in the form of fertilisers and pesticides in grasslands. Read more

MSc by Research: Signaling pathways controlling epidermal development in cereals

Plants living on land face brutal threats from pests, dehydration and temperature. To survive and thrive, land plants evolved a waxy ‘cuticle’ and distinctive epidermal cells such as gas pores and defensive barbs. Read more

Heat shapes plant growth - unravelling crosstalk between temperature and hormone signalling pathways in the control of leaf development

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, and thereby also impacts crop quality and yield. Read more
