Project at Aberystwyth University: Transgene free gene editing in plants via nanoparticles.

Project description. CRISPR/CAS9 gene editing, and several closely related technologies, have emerged in the last decade as an extremely powerful tool in the life sciences, allowing precise and targeted editing of plant and animal genomes. Read more

Mildly refined fractions of legumes as novel sustainable food ingredients

Click. here. for more details. Summary. Food components, such as starch and other biopolymers and macromolecules (proteins), are being used in the food industry as thickeners, gelling agents, or emulsifiers in a variety of products. Read more

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

EASTBIO: Investigating the Underlying Molecular and Cell Biology of Emerging Disease Threats to Trees

Phytophthora species are extraordinarily virulent and adaptable plant pathogens. They are over-represented among recently emerging biotic threats to trees worldwide, with prominent examples including P. Read more

Identification of core and regulatory haustorial proteins of powdery mildews for crop protection by novel silencing approaches of genes involved in plant susceptibility, biotrophy or virulence

The ultimate goal of this PhD project is to devise disease control strategies alternative to GM or traditional fungicide treatments to protect plants against powdery mildews, which are major biotrophic fungal pathogens affecting many valuable food crops, including cereals, strawberry, cucurbits or pea.
