Project Description

Fungal pathogens cause disease in crop plants dramatically reducing yields and quality. Preventing fungal disease in crops would ensure global food security and reduce agricultural inputs with respect to fungicide application.
Septoria tritici blotch (STB) is currently the most economically destructive disease of winter wheat crops in Ireland and North-Western Europe. This research will identify and characterise Zymoseptoria tritici genes involved in virulence and aggressiveness using molecular and biochemistry based techniques.

To apply submit an electronic copy of Curriculum Vitae, a letter of interest and names and email addresses of two academic referees to Dr. A. Feechan electronically: [email protected]
