  BBSCR ICase project: What makes a good female? Trait characterization of female fertility traits for hybrid development in wheat
  Prof Z A Wilson, Dr J Fernandez
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
Successful reproduction is critical to seed set and crop yields. Self-fertilisation typically occurs in cereals, however hybrids, the products of cross-fertilisation, tend to more resilient and have up to 20% increased yield potential compared to inbred equivalents.
  Making the male: the impact of germline gene networks on plant and crop fertility
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Plant fertility and food security depend upon sexual reproduction and the vital role of the male and female germlines which differentiate to produce sperm and female (egg) gametes.
  BBSRC iCase Project: Enhancing Barley Environmental Stress Tolerance Through Targeted Mutagenesis
  Dr G Mendiondo, Dr D Cook
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
Global warming and the predicted impact on seasonal rainfall variation suggest that we may see both drier and wetter growing seasons in the future.
