PhD topic / PhD position: Characterization of components of cytokinin metabolism involved in shoot regeneration

Supervisor: Markéta Pernisová. Annotation: Plants, unlike animals, possess a unique developmental plasticity that enables them to develop new organs throughout their entire life. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more

WR DTP fully-funded project: Mapping genes to metabolic networks: integrating omics for metabolic gene discovery

Specialised metabolism in plants is vital for adaptation and is a valuable source of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. Identifying the genes of plant specialised metabolism provides new insight into plant biology and may also lead to the development of new biotechnological tools. Read more

How does the metabolic status of the plant regulate embryo development and seed viability?

This project will discover how carbohydrate availability regulates embryo development and seed viability in Arabidopsis. Seed growth depends on the interplay between developmental/genetic programmes and carbohydrate supply from the maternal plant. Read more

Iron Homeostasis In Bacterial Plant Colonization And Disease

Background. Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via specific transport mechanisms. Read more

EASTBIO Metabolic engineering to produce novel natural products as tools for understanding response to environmental changes.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Fatty acids and lipids are important factors in human health though our diets, and are essential for cellular homeostasis (membranes) and protein regulation (S-acylation, N-myristoylation, GPI anchors) in all eukaryotes. Read more

Right place, right time: Targeted auxin delivery to improve tree cutting propagation

The Government has set a target to plant 10,000 hectares of trees per year in England by 2025. However producing enough trees to meet this demand requires faster propagation techniques. Read more

Determining the importance of lipid remodelling in the rhizosphere bacteria

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more
