How does rising atmospheric CO2 change the productivity of crops and trees?
Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round
Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. New research in the lab investigates how plant growth is controlled by the supply of carbon from photosynthesis (source strength) verses the demand for carbon in growing tissues (sink strength).
Multistep Phosphorelay Signaling in Crop Stress

In our lab we are interested in the study of plant hormonal signaling pathways, particularly cytokinins (CKs) in the development of model plant Arabidopsis thaliana (1-4).
Epigenetic changes in Plant Acclimation.
Prof T Lawson, Dr R Zabet
25 January 2019
Scientific background. Plants, including all our crop plants, live in a dynamic environment with external conditions varying over the day and season and these signals influence how a plant grows and how productive it is.
