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

EASTBIO Understanding barley-Puccinia interaction: the interaction between pathogen effectors and the host immune system

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is the fourth most important arable 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

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Does fire alter plant-mycorrhiza feedbacks in heathlands?

Background. Global fire regimes are changing. In the UK, fires are become more frequent and sometimes more severe. These changes irrevocably alter plant and soil communities, potentially affecting important interactions between plants and symbiotic soil mutualists. Read more

EASTBIO: Understanding how plant pathogen effector proteins contribute to host range and nonhost disease resistance

Crop diseases destroy more than 25 % of our food each year. Protecting crops with pesticides represents a considerable financial and environmental challenge. To develop new strategies to combat disease it is important to understand the molecular and cell biology of how microbial plant pathogens cause disease.  .

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

How to build a biological decoder - dissecting calcium specificity in plants (MILLER_U22DTP2)

Calcium is one of the most common secondary messengers involved in cell signalling in plants. A first response to a vast array of abiotic and biotic stresses includes changes in cytosolic calcium concentrations that regulate downstream processes. Read more

Understanding the mechanistic basis of crop yield reductions in warm winters (PENFIELD_J22DTP)

In the UK and Europe high yielding arable crops are sown in autumn and flower the following spring. During winter they require chilling to promote flowering and also during flower development to promote high fertility. Read more
