Showing 1 to 9 of 9
  Assessing temporal stability of bioscience evidence base
  Prof J Koricheva, Prof E Kulinskaya
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
World-class bioscience is critically dependent on statistical methodologies allowing synthesis of available bioscience data for generating new biological understanding and development of policies and management strategies.
  The application of modern Synthetic Biology techniques to address the production of nutritional and industrial speciality chemicals
  Prof P Fraser, Dr G Enfissi
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Isoprenoids, also known as terpenoids represent the largest and oldest class of natural products documented. In crop plants intense efforts have been made to increase nutritional isoprenoids such as carotenoids (-carotene provitamin A) and tocopherols (vitamin E) as a means of nutritional enhancement.
  Increasing fitness potential of plants through chromatin landscape analysis during stress responses
  Prof A Devoto, Dr C Turnbull
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Stress responses under water scarcity are induced to enable survival and simultaneously shoot growth is reduced to limit water loss.
  Social epidemiology: interactions, networks, and disease spread in a key pollinator
  Prof M Brown, Prof M Fisher
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Disease spread – in humans, domesticated animals and plants, and wildlife – is a major threat to health and ecosystem services. However, how diseases spread – their epidemiology – in complex social organisms, like humans and bees, is poorly understood.
  Sensing and memorising abiotic stress through the DNA integrity pathway in plants
  Prof L Bogre, Dr J Song
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
How plants cope with environmental stresses is a fundamental question for sustainable agriculture.
  Host proteins targeted by the CSEP family 21 effectors from the biotrophic pathogenic fungus Blumeria graminis causing powdery mildew in barley
  Dr L Bindschedler, Dr T Bozkurt
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Fungi are major actors in spoiling crops and reducing food yield. Among them, powdery mildews are a class of obligate fungal pathogens affecting major agricultural and horticultural crops such as cereals, grape, zucchini or strawberry, thus having a major impact on food production, in the UK and globally.
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round
Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
  Hypobaric hydrogen sulfide; a novel means to prevent food spoilage
  Dr S Jones
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The ability of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) to combat infection was first discovered in plants, which in response to stress, release several volatile sulphur containing compounds (H2S, COS, DMS, CS2, and methylmercaptan) (Bloem et al., 2005 J.
  Methods and policy pathways to optimize production of multiple interacting fish stocks
  Dr A Rossberg, Dr R Thorpe
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Global environmental issues related to food security, biodiversity, and use of antibiotic, pesticide and fertilizers suggest use of smart mixtures of crops/stocks in agriculture, forestry, farming, and ranching.
