For protecting crops, neonicotinoids have become the most widely used class of insecticides in the world. However, their use has been restricted in the European Union amidst fears that they are having adverse effects on pollinators such as the honey bee, Apis mellifera. 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

WR DTP fully-funded project: Developing phage therapy to reduce plant pathogen virulence

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable losses to food production. This project will develop a novel biocontrol approach to reduce the virulence of plant pathogenic Ralstonia solanacearum bacterium (causative agent of bacterial wilt) using phages – viral parasites of the pathogen. Read more
