  Exploring the contribution of horizontal gene transfer to greenhouse gas emissions from arable agriculture
  Dr J Hall, Prof T J Daniell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent and long-lived greenhouse gas, and arable agriculture is a major source of N2O due to incomplete denitrification of N-based fertilizers by microbes.
  Understanding how adaptive evolution shapes microbial community functioning in a changing environment
  Dr S O'Brien, Dr S Zytynska, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the main motivations for better understanding microbial communities is to manage ecosystem functioning. When conditions change, for example through climate change or intensive agricultural practices, microbial adaptive responses will drive ecological and evolutionary changes in the soil microbiome.
