EASTBIO Assessing microbiome functional traits as indicators of soil health for sustainable agriculture

Soil is a multifunctional environment upon which our food security depends. The ability of soils to maintain particular functions which contribute to ecosystem services (such as food, fibre and energy production) is compromised by soil degradation. Read more

Molecular breeding in raspberry to improve fruit quality PhD

An opportunity has arisen for a fully-funded PhD studentship through a collaboration between Cranfield University and Edward Vinson Ltd, a Kent-based soft fruit breeding company. Read more

Building a pyrenoid-based CO2-concentrating mechanism in higher plants

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Photosynthesis is one of the key engineering targets for synthetic biologists to enhance the yield potential of globally important crops. Read more

Physiological response of quinoa to environmental stress: effects on nutritional profile, plant immunity, pest management and soil carbon content

Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) is an Andean crop with numerous beneficial applications in agriculture/food systems, resulting from its excellent nutritional profile, high adaptability to grow on marginal lands (unsuitable for major crops) and tolerance to extreme environmental conditions (high temperatures, drought, and saline soils).

Dining out in the Anthropocene: the impact non-native Himalayan Balsam on bee Microbiome, health and pollinator ecosystems

Honeybees (Apis mellifera) play a vital role in pollination of crops and wildflowers. They are “generalists” who visit a wide range of flowers, basing their choice on quality of reward (nectar, pollen) and of quantity of flowers available. Read more

Nutrient transport in insect-microbe symbiosis

All animals exist in symbiosis with a complex microbiome. The most intriguing, and intimate, form of symbiosis is endosymbiosis, where one partner, the microbe, exists inside cells of the other partner, the animal host. 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

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
