MSc by Research: 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 plant metabolic pathways over the past two decades. Read more

China Scholarship Council: The heat is on – how microRNAs regulate plant responses to high temperature

Ambient temperature has profound effects on almost all aspects of plant growth and, consequently, impacts crop quality and yield. As the climate crisis escalates, plants in temperate regions experience more frequent heat waves as well as an overall rise in ambient temperature. Read more

China Scholarship Council: Monitoring and manipulating kinase signaling in the context of polarity, immune signaling and cancer

Cell polarity is a central feature of most if not all cells across species. Polarity can be understood as the unequal distribution of molecules, organelles and other cellular features allowing cells to organise functions and physiological outputs according to this axis of polarisation. Read more

Expanding the ligandable E3 ubiquitin ligases for targeted protein degradation

Out of more than 600 E3 ubiquitin ligases in cells, currently only a handful have small molecule binders that can be used for PROteolysis Targeting Chimeras (PROTACs) and harnessed for targeted protein degradation. Read more

Iron Homeostasis In Bacterial Plant Colonization And Disease

Background. Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via specific transport mechanisms. Read more

Can Soft Fruit Species Engage With Beneficial Microorganisms And Restrict Oomycete Pathogens

Background. The world needs a sustainable and secure supply of fresh and affordable food. Increased demand for berries is being driven by their popularity and consumer belief in their healthful properties. Read more

p53 upregulation by non-invasive and non-genotoxic physical stimulation as a preventative strategy against COVID and other viral agents

This is an interdisciplinary collaborative approach involving industry that seeks to develop and optimise a strategy to boost p53 levels in anticipation of, or response to, viral infection as epitomised by the present COVID epidemic. Read more

EASTBIO: How cells prevent errors in chromosome inheritance during cell division

Human cells store their genetic information in 46 chromosomes. To maintain this vital genetic information, a complete set of chromosomes must be inherited precisely by each daughter cell after cell division. Read more
