  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round
Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  Expressing the key photoprotective protein of diatom algae, LHCX1, in higher plants
  Prof A Ruban, Dr G Hanke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Significance and timeliness. Photosynthetic organisms face rapid fluctuations in light intensity. High light is harmful, resulting in reduction in plant productivity [1].
  Investigating the Impact of Volatile Organic Compounds Released by Plants in Response to Biotic and Abiotic Stressors under ambient and elevated CO2 conditions (VOC–Plant–Stress–CO2).
  Dr C Pfrang, Dr R Girling
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
There are currently about 32 million trees alongside Britain’s trunk roads and motorways; this January plans were announced to plant 50 million trees to create a "Northern Forest" over the next 25 years along a 120-mile stretch of the M62 backed by £6 million from the Government; the attached image depicts the M27 that has been running for the last 40 years along the edge of the New Forest.
  Fundamental requirements for branching in plants
  Dr J Harrison
Applications accepted all year round
Branching is a key determinant of crop yields because it affects the positioning of organs around stems, and hence light interception and productivity.
  Mechanisms controlling the biogenesis and functions of chloroplasts in plants: protein transport and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
  Prof P Jarvis
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is focused on the biogenesis of chloroplasts and other plastids in plants, particularly in relation to the import of nucleus-encoded proteins and the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system.
  Disease phenomics - quantifying the development of disease symptoms in infected plants
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round
Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  Process Simulation, System Identification, Model Reduction and Process Control of Solvent Based Carbon Capture for Power Plants
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. We have pilot plants or even large scale commercial deployment of solvent based carbon capture plants.
  Extracting novel algorithms from Nature
  Dr G Bassel, Dr I Johnston
Application Deadline: 22 January 2019
The development of algorithms underpins the information processing age and data science. Creating novel algorithms capable for processing information under different conditions and scenarios provides opportunities to extend computation to new domains and under different conditions.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploiting plant diversity to make a new biomaterials
  Prof S Turner, Prof V Allan, Prof S Flitsch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics synthesised from fossil fuels.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
