Increasing global food security by preventing fungal post-harvest rot of fruit and vegetables.

Supervisors. Dr Rebecca Hall and Dr Helen Cockerton. This project will combine microbiology and molecular biology to help solve the global challenge of food security through the study of the plant pathogen Rhizopus stolonifer and the plant-microbe interactions that occur between this fungus and the sweet potato.

Stress responses in crops and sustainable production of chemicals and biomass

The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant stress responses to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants and phytopharmaceuticals, leading to enhanced crop yields and solutions for animals and human health. Read more

CO2 perception and responses in plants – building new connections

Land plants must constantly adjust and adapt to their environment. Environmental fluctuations often culminate in stress for plant growth, disrupt carbon and water balance, and affect crop productivity and fresh-water use. Read more

Chromatin dynamics regulating light and temperature signalling in Arabidopsis

Outline & Aim. Environmental and endogenous stimuli shape plant development, growth and photoprotection by triggering nuclear processes that lead to major changes in gene expression. Read more

MSc by Research: Jasmonate control of barley development

From the earliest farmers to modern plant breeders, humans have continually modified the body plan of cereals, sometimes drastically, to generate higher grain yields. Read more

MSc by Research: Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied plant metabolic pathways over the past two decades. Read more

Environmental regulation of crop productivity

Crop productivity is highly dependent on environmental conditions. Understanding the mechanisms by which plants respond to environmental signals will therefore allow us to select for climate resilient crops and improve global food security. Read more
