  Molecular mechanisms regulating wheat grain nutrient content and yield.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr P Borrill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Wheat is one of the world’s most important crops providing over 20 % of calories eaten by humankind.
  The control of wheat grain protein content
  Dr P Borrill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Production of staple crops such as wheat must increase by 50 % to meet the food requirements of the global population which is projected to exceed 9 billion people by 2050.
  The control of wheat grain protein content (iCASE Industrial Partnership)
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr P Borrill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Production of staple crops such as wheat must increase by 50 % to meet the food requirements of the global population which is projected to exceed 9 billion people by 2050.
  Uncovering new signalling nodes in the interaction between wheat and the fungal pathogen Mycosphaerella graminicola
  Dr A Sadanandom
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Mycosphaerella graminicola is an economically important fungal pathogen of wheat leaves and the causal agent of Septoria tritici blotch disease (STB).
  The Role of E3 Ligases on the Modulation of Recombination in Cereals
  Dr I Colas, Dr L Ramsay, Prof R Waugh
Application Deadline: 5 January 2019
Summary. In barley and wheat substantial proportions of the chromosomes are inherited together as a large linkage block, preventing the generation of novel gene combinations and useful variation that could be exploited in breeding programs.
  Future-proofing our food: exploiting landrace diversity for more efficient andresilient wheat
  Dr A Harper, Prof Ian Bancroft
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
To ensure global food security, crop breeders must develop varieties which are. more productive as well as more resilient to the potential impacts of climate.
  Urease metabolism in the wheat pathogen Zymoseptoria tritici
  Dr J Rutherford
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Septoria tritici blotch is a serious worldwide disease of wheat that is caused by the fungus Zymoseptoria tritici. In some cases up to 50% of wheat yields are lost due to Z.
  Why do we eat wheat? Co-evolution of people and plants in the Fertile Crescent
  Prof C P Osborne, Prof G Jones, Prof M Rees
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Scientific importance. 60% of human calories come from wheat, rice and maize. These crops were domesticated 10,000 years ago during the Neolithic, and we have subsequently adopted very few new food plants.
