We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
This PhD position builds upon past collaborations in PhD student supervision between the Scottish Fish Immunology Research Centre (SFIRC) at the University of Aberdeen and Skretting, a global leader in feed for aquaculture.
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
