Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Background. Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales.

Stress responses in crops and sustainable production of chemicals and biomass

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

WR DTP fully-funded project: Conservation of light-dependent immunity pathways in greenhouse crops

This project is ideal for either (i) a student with a biology background with some programming experience and an interest in modelling or (ii) a student with a maths, physics or computer science background who is interested in learning how to perform plant biology experiments. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more

Long-lasting defence priming for the protection of fruit against postharvest diseases

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more
