Investigating a nature-based solution for agricultural runoff in Ireland: Identification of nutrient/trace element accumulator plant species and their microbial interaction.

PhD Proposal Description. Diffuse water pollution from agricultural sources in the form of excessive nutrient run-off and drainage discharge is a persistent global contamination source of water quality in rural and agricultural catchment streams and a growing challenge in farming systems.

EASTBIO Bacterial selfishness, and how bacterial communities cope with nutrient shortage

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Most antibiotics target rapidly dividing bacteria. However, for the majority of their existence, bacteria grow in conditions where a few or most nutrients are limiting so that very little to no propagation takes place. Read more

How plants coordinate responses to nutrient availability (PATRON_E22DTP)

Nitrogen (N) is a critical nutrient for plant growth and yield. While N supply in the form of fertilisers has been facilitated through the energy-intensive Haber-Bosch process, over-application of has drastic ecological and environmental consequences. Read more

Feed-forward regulation of nutrient-dependent growth

Plant traits such as nutrient uptake efficiency, are controlled by multiple genetic factors interacting combinatorially. To develop high-yielding crops requiring fewer chemical inputs, we need to understand the networks of genes that control complex traits such as plant growth in response to nutrients. Read more

Modelling Soil-Nutrient-Crop Interaction

Interaction between soil-plants and nutrients is very complex as there clearly influence the physical and chemical processes involved such as water and nutrient flow, fate of nutrients in soil, nutrient uptake processes, change of chemical properties of soils. Read more

EASTBIO Assessing microbiome functional traits as indicators of soil health for sustainable agriculture

Soil is a multifunctional environment upon which our food security depends. The ability of soils to maintain particular functions which contribute to ecosystem services (such as food, fibre and energy production) is compromised by soil degradation. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Biogeochemical cycling in paddy soils: Impact of climate-smart water management

BACKGROUND. Rice is a dominant human food but also the most water-demanding staple crop globally. This high-water use is due to its cultivation; in flooded field it requires 2-3 times more water than other arable crops. Read more
