Exploiting wheat-wild relative introgression lines and synthetics for resistance to viral diseases under climate change

A major cause contributing to the loss of agricultural production is the impact of pests and pathogens. Globally, pathogens destroy ~20% of wheat production even with improved pest and disease management measures. Read more

Exploring and exploiting strigolactone exudation in wheat

The detection of environmental information allows plants to shape their growth to prevailing conditions, and plays a key role in determining the productivity of crop species that feed the global population. Read more

Eastbio Pattern of gene loss in the hexaploidy wheat genomes

Inferring pattern and consequences of gene losses in the hexaploid wheat genome. The genome of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was formed by hybridization events of three wild ancestors, resulting in a hexaploid species containing 3 subgenomes (the A, B and D genomes). Read more

Triple whammy – breeding wheat for increased winter growth rate

Crop root growth has generated significant interest with regard to net zero agriculture, because increasing root mass captures more carbon in the soil, and leads to more effective uptake of nitrogenous fertilizer. Read more

Coupling crop physiological change with multi-spectral imaging in winter wheat

The aim of this studentship is to couple changes in winter wheat physiological development with multi-spectral imaging to support a new generation of crop management tools and technologies for use on farm and in crop improvement. Read more

EASTBIO How do soil and root microbiomes influence the growth and development of spelt (Triticum spelta), an ancient wheat?

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Breeding of elite wheat varieties has led to a significant increase in yields at the farm and global scale, yet those yield gains are beginning to plateau, and in some regions decline. Read more

Eastbio Microbe-dependent trait expression in wheat.

A recent publication in PNAS (Wagner et al. 2021) demonstrated that heterosis of root biomass and germination in maize is strongly dependent on the below ground microbial environment. Read more

Quantifying the combined impact of climate change and ozone on crops

Overview. The risk to food security posed by global environmental change is one of the most significant threats to health and economic stability for a large fraction of the world’s population. Read more

Optimising plant symbiotic bacteria through quorum-sensing and engineering biology approaches for delivery of climate-smart, sustainable nitrogen fertilizer for agriculture

For this exciting and timely PhD studentship, we seek an enthusiastic and motivated individual. The ideal candidate will be passionate about contributing to sustainable agricultural systems through the development of ‘green’ technologies. Read more
