How Do Post Translational Modifications enable adaptive responses in plants

Proteins undergo post-translational modifications (PTMs) that have evolved in all forms of life as a mechanism for rapidly adapting protein function in response to many different kinds of stimuli. Read more

Recovering and reusing materials from offensive waste streams for biological and industrial applications

The Coronavirus pandemic has led to a dramatic increase in the amount of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and sanitary products being used across all spheres of society as municipal or clinical non-recycled wastes (MoCNWs). Read more

Improving yield stability in wheat: new tools for analysis and understanding

NIAB. and the. University of Cambridge. Project Summary. Farming challenge and industry need. Farmers consistently mention that yield stability is an important consideration in choosing which variety to grow, and as a major factor contributing to volatility in financial planning for their businesses.

MSc by Research programme - A walk on the wild side: unravelling the functional significance of the wild and domesticated barley microbiota

The proposed project will be integrated into our of our long-term efforts to decipher the structure, function and host control of the microbiota inhabiting the rhizosphere, the thin layer of soil adhering to plant roots, and determine its presumed contributions to plant growth and health using barley (Hordeum vulgare) as an experimental model.

MSc by Research programme - Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied . Read more

MSc by Research programme - Regulation of Ideal Plant Architecture in Barley

Plant architecture, or body plan, plays a key role in determining grain yield of crop plants. However, we have little understanding of the molecular genetic basis of architecture in the temperate cereals such as barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), especially in comparison to the warm weather crops such as rice (Oryza sativa).

The role of (poly)phenol-rich fruit on exercise recovery and performance (ref: RDFC21/HLS/SER/HOWATSON)

The ability to recover quickly from exercise is of great importance for many athletes that train or compete on single and consecutive days. We know that strenuous exercise can result in several unwanted consequences such as muscle soreness and declines in muscle function that can be present for several days after the initial bout of exercise.
