Using soil microbes for biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes

Soil microbes | Plant-parasitic nematodes | Plant defences | Biological control. Plants naturally exploit the soil microbiome by recruiting beneficial microbes that aid plants to rapidly adapt to changing abiotic and biotic conditions. Read more

Understanding the molecular mechanisms of plant disease resistance

Plant pathogens pose major challenges both to crop production and to the resilience of natural ecosystems. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture and forestry. Read more

How plants influence their root microbiome during phosphate starvation

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

EASTBIO Understanding barley-Puccinia interaction: the interaction between pathogen effectors and the host immune system

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is the fourth most important arable crop worldwide and second in the UK. Diseases, including those caused by the brown rust pathogen Puccinia hordei, cause barley yield losses of up to 40%. Read more

Stress responses in crops and sustainable production of chemicals and biomass

The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants and phytopharmaceuticals, leading to enhanced crop yields and solutions for animals and human health. Read more

Integration of environmental signals in plants

This project is available through the MIBTP programme on a competition basis. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. Read more
