EASTBIO: Investigating the Underlying Molecular and Cell Biology of Emerging Disease Threats to Trees

Phytophthora species are extraordinarily virulent and adaptable plant pathogens. They are over-represented among recently emerging biotic threats to trees worldwide, with prominent examples including P. Read more

Project at Aberystwyth University: Transgene free gene editing in plants via nanoparticles.

Project description. CRISPR/CAS9 gene editing, and several closely related technologies, have emerged in the last decade as an extremely powerful tool in the life sciences, allowing precise and targeted editing of plant and animal genomes. Read more

Molecular engineering of the ubiquitin-proteasome system: A new approach to pathogen resistance in plants

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

Identification of core and regulatory haustorial proteins of powdery mildews for crop protection by novel silencing approaches of genes involved in plant susceptibility, biotrophy or virulence

The ultimate goal of this PhD project is to devise disease control strategies alternative to GM or traditional fungicide treatments to protect plants against powdery mildews, which are major biotrophic fungal pathogens affecting many valuable food crops, including cereals, strawberry, cucurbits or pea.

Plant food consumption, flavonoids and cardiometabolic health

Plant-based diets have become very popular due to potential benefits for individual and planetary health. The goal of this PhD project will be to investigate the role of flavonoids as mediators of health benefits of plant food consumption. Read more

Project at Brunel University: Improving livestock resilience by understanding the role of the microbiome in viral infection progression and antibiotic resistance

Project description. Pigs represent over 35% of agriculturally produced protein for consumption globally. Two major microbial threats to the UK porcine agri-sector are porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) and Classical Swine Fever Virus (CSFV). Read more
