  Accelerating disease resistance breeding for diploid potato germplasm improvement (JONESS20CASE)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pests and diseases reduce crop yields, requiring agrichemical sprays. We aim to replace agrichemicals with genetic resistance for pest and disease control.

  Dr M Moscou
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis) is an obligate biotrophic fungal pathogen of grasses. There are several adapted forms that preferentially infect different species including wheat and barley.
  How does the plant decode self- and non-self-signals to balance immune response and growth? (MENKES20DTPR)
  Dr F Menke, Prof N Talbot
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are constantly exposed to microbial signals and need to decode and integrate these signals with signaling processes controlling growth.
  Identifying global regulators of effector gene expression in the rice blast fungus (TALBOTS20DTP)
  Prof N Talbot
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnaporthe oryzae is the causal agent of rice blast, one of the most serious diseases affecting rice cultivation around the world.
  TurboID-charging discovery of plant pathogen virulence and host defense mechanisms (JONESS20DTP)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogens cause disease and reduce crop yields, secreting "effector" proteins that target host. proteins and suppress immunity.
