Nutrient transport in insect-microbe symbiosis

All animals exist in symbiosis with a complex microbiome. The most intriguing, and intimate, form of symbiosis is endosymbiosis, where one partner, the microbe, exists inside cells of the other partner, the animal host. Read more

Using soil microbes for biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes

Soil microbes | Plant-parasitic nematodes | Plant defences | Biological control. Plants naturally exploit the soil microbiome by recruiting beneficial microbes that aid plants to rapidly adapt to changing abiotic and biotic conditions. Read more

How does the metabolic status of the plant regulate embryo development and seed viability?

This project will discover how carbohydrate availability regulates embryo development and seed viability in Arabidopsis. Seed growth depends on the interplay between developmental/genetic programmes and carbohydrate supply from the maternal plant. Read more

PhD in the genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of genomics and rapid adaptation in plants. Our research combines cutting-edge genomic techniques, comparative analyses and experimental approaches to understand how organisms adapt to their environment. Read more

PhD in evolutionary biology - retracing the origins of C4 photosynthesis in the grass Alloteropsis semialata

During evolution, grasses acquired a variety of functional traits that allowed them to colonize almost all environments around the globe, and rank amongst the most productive crops, weeds, and invasive species. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity across scales

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. Key questions remain about how land-use change drives species losses and changing composition across the tropics, from local to regional spatial scales. Read more

Can Soft Fruit Species Engage With Beneficial Microorganisms And Restrict Oomycete Pathogens

Background. The world needs a sustainable and secure supply of fresh and affordable food. Increased demand for berries is being driven by their popularity and consumer belief in their healthful properties. Read more

CRISPR/Cas mediated chromosome engineering in Arabidopsis

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
CRISPR/Cas has emerged as a flexible tool for genome editing in complex eukaryotes. It has been widely used for targeted mutagenesis and DNA repair as well more sophisticated approaches utilising the specificity of guide RNAs to target Cas9-tagged proteins. Read more
