MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Re-engineering peroxisome movement in plants

The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production. Organelle movement is dynamic and linked to changes in cell size, plant biomass and in response to factors which affect food production such as pathogens (Perico and Sparkes, New Phytol. Read more

MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Reaching for light: how aboveground competition shapes the 3D architecture of trees

Trees come in all shapes and sizes – from incredibly tall and slender, to short and wide. Among the various drivers that shape tree architecture, a particularly important one is competition for light with neighbouring trees. Read more

MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Lonely at the top? How developmentally isolated are land plant meristems

Perhaps the defining aspect of plant development is its plasticity. To be able to respond to changing environmental conditions and biotic stresses, plants maintain continuous pools of stem cells (known as meristems) that produce new organs throughout a plant’s lifecycle. Read more

MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Is larval imprinting a key mechanism by which insect crop pests can switch to new host plants?

Insect crop pests are a major challenge to global food security. A potential mechanism underlying insects’ ability to infest new plants is through larval imprinting, where host plant preferences of an adult are determined by the plant they experienced as a larva. Read more
