Urban expansion is a major threat to global biodiversity, with 70% of the global human population predicted to be urban residents by 2050.
  EASTBIO: Developing plant breeding programmes with manipulated recombination rates
  Prof I Mackay, Prof R Waugh
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The location and pattern of genetic recombination has important consequences for plant breeding and thus for how humans produce food effectively to supply a growing global population.
  EASTBIO: Enhancing the management of soil-dwelling crop pests by natural populations of entomopathogenic organisms
  Dr A Evans, Dr G Jackson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Management of soil dwelling pests such as wheat bulb fly, cabbage root fly, carrot fly and wireworm, now rely on the use of insecticide seed treatments, as insecticides available as a soil drench application are now limited since the revocation of chlorpyrifos in 2016.
