Understanding and Engineering a Natural Herbicide from Cyanobacteria (TRUMAN_J22CASE)

Bacteria have an incredible capacity to produce natural products with exquisite bioactivities, which makes these compounds excellent candidates as medicines and agrochemicals. Read more

Do shared genetic pathways control drought tolerance and senescence in wheat? (BORRILL_J22CASE)

We need to increase the production of staple crops such as wheat by 50 % by 2050 to meet the global demand for food. However, water scarcity represents a major limiting factor for crop production and poses an increasing risk to global wheat production due to climate change. Read more

Understanding Streptomyces cell division to improve antibiotic production (SCHLIMPERT_J22DTP)

Every cell must divide to grow and to propagate. While most bacteria simply split in half, the decision when and where to divide is more complex in multicellular bacteria like the antibiotic producing soil bacteria Streptomyces. Read more

Investigating the potential for re-emergence of wheat stem rust in a changing climate (SAUNDERS_J22DTP)

Wheat stem rust is a notoriously damaging disease of wheat and barley and occurs in most wheat growing areas worldwide. Today, in western Europe the stem rust pathogen, Puccinia graminis f. Read more

Investigating the cellular basis of organ symmetry establishment in plants (MOUBAYIDIN_J22DTP)

During multicellular organ development, the establishment of a symmetric pattern, e.g., radial and bilateral symmetry, requires careful coordination of cells dividing and expanding within tissues. Read more

Deciphering the in vivo RNA structure code in regulating protein translation in plants (DING_J22DTP2)

Codon optimisation is a common method in synthetic biology to achieve high levels of protein expression. It relies on the creation of so-called “silent” or synonymous mutations within a coding sequence, such that the DNA/RNA sequence is altered but the resulting amino acid sequence remains unchanged. Read more

Investigating how Plants use RNA to Cope with Stress (DING_J22DTP1)

The diversity of RNA structure is wide and varied, from hairpins and bulges through to triplex and quadruplexes. These structures are able to control numerous biological functions from sensing of messenger compounds to dictating whether genes are switched on or off. Read more

Decoding gene expression in polyploid wheat (BORRILL_J22DTP)

Many globally important crops are polyploids, for example cotton, sugar cane, potato and wheat. However, the regulation of polyploid genomes is complicated because there are multiple copies of most genes. Read more

Engineering enhanced vitamin synthesis in bacteria (WARRENM_Q22CASE)

This project aims to apply synthetic biology and metabolic engineering strategies to one of the most complex biochemical pathways found in nature in order to address a current need for a cheaper and more reliable source of vitamin B12, the so-called anti-pernicious anaemia factor. Read more
