Eastbio Unravelling the mechanisms of plant-driven degradation of crop protection compounds

The advent of synthetic, organic crop protection compounds (CPC) during the first half of the 20th century provided a new level of efficacy in pest control for agriculture and vector borne diseases, improving food production and disease prevention around the world, a need that continues today.

EASTBIODynamic ubiquitin signalling coordinates transcriptional reprogramming in plant immunity

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Dynamic regulation of gene expression is vital for all organisms and enables them to respond to the ever-changing environment. Plant cells display dramatic reprogramming of the transcriptome in response to pathogen attack, ensuring prioritisation of immune responses over normal cellular functions. Read more

Exploring essential nutrient transport in animal-microbe symbiosis

Understanding how symbiotic relationships between microorganisms and host animals are maintained is key to our understanding of how the physiology, evolutionary processes, ecological dynamics and, ultimately, survival of host animals is influenced. Read more

Harnessing biopharmaceuticals from microorganisms

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Background. Most of the bioactive molecules used in agriculture and medicine are made by microorganisms. For instance, Abamectin derives from actinomycete bacteria and is one of the most widely used insecticides in crop protection, with a global market of $938 million every year. Read more

Exploring The Utility of Transcriptomics Data in Toxicology

One of the challenges for the future of agriculture is to sustainable increase food production, using only the same or ideally less land area, to provide the quality and quantity required to meet the needs of an increasingly affluent & growing human population and simultaneously mitigating climate change and protecting or regenerating biodiversity.

Post-translational regulation of transcription dynamics in plant stress responses

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Precise regulation of gene expression is vital for all organisms. In eukaryotes, dynamic changes in gene expression orchestrate cell development and cellular responses to the ever changing environment. Read more

Towards a unified understanding of species invasions along chemical stress gradients

Predicting how ecological systems respond to environmental change is hampered by their inherent complexity — processes operating at one scale of organisation lead to emergent properties at higher levels of organisation. Read more

Research opportunities in the Department of Environment and Geography

We offer an outstanding, dynamic and interdisciplinary environment in which to carry out PhD research in all aspects of human geography and environmental science, including lab-based, field-based, desk-based and policy-oriented research. Read more
