Exploring the unintended consequences of zero-deforestation oil palm

Background. Concerns about the loss of tropical rainforests have led companies to make zero-deforestation commitments (ZDCs) to reduce carbon emissions and biodiversity losses due to tropical commodities, such as palm oil. Read more

Building a pyrenoid-based CO2-concentrating mechanism in higher plants

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Photosynthesis is one of the key engineering targets for synthetic biologists to enhance the yield potential of globally important crops. Read more

Understanding the speciation process in a mega diverse genus

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Begonia is a genus of over 2,000 species, most are narrow endemics, with only a few widespread species. We wish to understand how distinct the species are by determining patterns of gene flow across the whole genome in sister species and populations. We will focus on two constrasting cases. .

New methods for detecting and quantifying genetic adaptation

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Understanding how populations adapt to their environment is a major focus of evolution research. Falling sequencing costs means genome data is more abundant than ever, but we still lack efficient methods for using it to infer and quantify the effects of natural selection. Read more

ACCE DTP fully funded studentship - The form, function and vulnerability of urban trees under future climate change

This PhD project will use a state-of-the-art instrumented tree sensor network (the Urban Tree Observatory) coupled with leaf level photosynthesis and reflectance spectroscopy measurements to improve our understanding of the structure, function and health of the urban treescape in Sheffield, UK.
