Uncovering the hidden effects of an emerging environmental contaminant on plant health

Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are a family of human made chemicals used by industry as part of stain- and water-resistant fabrics, cleaning products, paints, fire-fighting foams and in cookware. 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

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

Characterization of the molecular crosstalk regulating xylem differentiation by environmental signals and its function in photosynthesis optimisation

The plant vascular system is composed by two conductive tissues, the xylem and the phloem. Xylem conducts water and minerals from the roots and provides mechanical support to the plant due to thick secondary cell walls, rich on lignin and cellulose. Read more

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

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
