EASTBIO: Your Best Face Forward - how cereals regulate their epidermal surfaces

Plants living on land face brutal conditions with threats from pests, dehydration and temperature extremes. To survive and thrive on land, plants evolved a specialised surface, sealed by a waxy ‘cuticle’ and distinctive epidermal cells such as gas pores and defensive barbs. Read more

EASTBIO: Understanding how plant pathogen effector proteins contribute to host range and nonhost disease resistance

Crop diseases destroy more than 25 % of our food each year. Protecting crops with pesticides represents a considerable financial and environmental challenge. To develop new strategies to combat disease it is important to understand the molecular and cell biology of how microbial plant pathogens cause disease.  .

EASTBIO: Deciphering the role of translation in temperature-controlled development

Project Description for Find-A-PhD Advert (max 400 words). This will be the text that is advertised to prospective students. Ambient temperature has profound effects on almost all aspects of plant development, from the onset of seed germination and seedling establishment to flower and fruit production. 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).

MSc by Research programme - Jasmonate control of barley development

From the earliest farmers to modern plant breeders, humans have continually modified the body plan of cereals, sometimes drastically, to generate higher grain yields. Read more

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 - 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.
