  (BBSRC DTP) Exploiting transcriptional regulation to improve plant cell wall as a feedstock for the sustainable production of biofuels and other chemicals
  Prof S Turner, Dr M Kim, Prof A Sharrocks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellulose is a polymer of glucose and its remarkable structural properties means it is the world’s most abundant biopolymer. Cellulose from higher plants is an abundant source of renewable material that can be used as a source of raw material for chemical and fuel production, or for generating novel biomaterials.
