Funded PhD studentship in microbial ecology and evolution: Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes

Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes. A 4-year PhD studentship in microbial ecology, starting in October 2021 or in February 2022, is now open for application at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. Read more

Towards a genuine grain revolution: mapping the current socio-ecological landscape of heritage grain production in the UK

The UK grain production sector is facing existential challenges. While the conventional sector, dependent on fossil fuels and toxic agrichemicals, is unsustainable and increasingly unreliable, modern organic grain production also has problems due to climate change. Read more

Improving yield stability in wheat: new tools for analysis and understanding

NIAB. and the. University of Cambridge. Project Summary. Farming challenge and industry need. Farmers consistently mention that yield stability is an important consideration in choosing which variety to grow, and as a major factor contributing to volatility in financial planning for their businesses.

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.

Plant-insect interactions in a changing world

Project Overview: . Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to multiple important ecosystem services. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Regulation of Ideal Plant Architecture in Barley

Plant architecture, or body plan, plays a key role in determining grain yield of crop plants. However, we have little understanding of the molecular genetic basis of architecture in the temperate cereals such as barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), especially in comparison to the warm weather crops such as rice (Oryza sativa). Read more

MSc by Research programme - Jasmonate control of barley development

From the earliest farmers to modern plant breeders, humans have continually modified the body plan of cereals, sometimes drastically, to generate higher grain yields. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied. Read more

MSc by Research programme - A walk on the wild side: unravelling the functional significance of the wild and domesticated barley microbiota

The proposed project will be integrated into our of our long-term efforts to decipher the structure, function and host control of the microbiota inhabiting the rhizosphere, the thin layer of soil adhering to plant roots, and determine its presumed contributions to plant growth and health using barley (Hordeum vulgare) as an experimental model.
