Exploiting novel haplotypes to improve disease resistance in wheat (UAUY_J22CASE)

Wheat is a major cereal crop providing 20% of global calorie and protein intake for humans. While a 50% increase in wheat yield is required by 2050, diseases reduce yields by ~25% globally and thus pose a major threat to global food security. Read more

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

Evolution and engineering of non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (WILKINSON_J22DTP1)

The discovery & development of penicillin sparked ‘The Golden Age of Antibiotics’ which spanned the 1940’s to 1960’s when most major classes of antibiotics were discovered. 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

Understanding the mechanistic basis of crop yield reductions in warm winters (PENFIELD_J22DTP)

In the UK and Europe high yielding arable crops are sown in autumn and flower the following spring. During winter they require chilling to promote flowering and also during flower development to promote high fertility. 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
