Understanding the role of fungal effector proteins in antagonistic fungus–microbe interactions

Background. Fungi secrete a collection of proteins to their surrounding environments. In the case of plant-pathogenic fungi, many of these proteins are virulence factors, termed effectors, which function to promote host colonization through the modulation of plant physiology or immunity1.

CO2 perception and responses in plants – building new connections

Land plants must constantly adjust and adapt to their environment. Environmental fluctuations often culminate in stress for plant growth, disrupt carbon and water balance, and affect crop productivity and fresh-water use. Read more

PhD Opportunity - Numerical modelling of fruit tissue

We have a PhD opportunity for mechanical/materials engineers at Massey, Palmerston North. This project is part of a wider research programme at the New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research. Read more

UNDERSTANDING THE SURVIVAL OF FORESTS UNDER EXTREME DROUGHT

ABOUT THE PROJECT. Drought has a defining impact on plant performance, including the productivity of agricultural systems and the health of native forests and woodlands. Read more

Exploring the interaction between light intensity and rootzone water deficit stress as a means of improving berry phytonutrient content and Class 1 strawberry yields in TCEA systems

Mark Else (NIAB EMR), Paul Hadley and Carrie Twitchen (University of Reading). Total environment-controlled agriculture (TCEA) systems offer great potential for a consistent supply of high quality and phytonutritious strawberries, provided that initial plant quality is high and growing conditions are fully optimised.

Sustainable urban horticulture: managing soils for nutritional crops

Our research has demonstrated that there is potentially enough land in UK urban areas for urban horticulture to make an important contribution to UK fruit and vegetable production1. Read more

Institute of Molecular, Cell and Systems Biology

 Our institute houses a multi-disciplinary centre of excellence conducting fundamental and translational life science research underpinning health and food security. Read more

The impact of peat free compost alternatives on the physical, nutritional and sensory quality of kale

Peat is a finite resource that has been exploited by the horticulture industry, leading to damage of peatland habitats. Peat products are being phased out in the UK and Ireland and replaced with peat-free alternatives, such as biochar, coir, and bark composts. Read more
