Modelling the spread and control of livestock and zoonotic infectious diseases

Mathematical models are extensively used in both public-health and veterinary-health policy planning. Modern predictive models are now at the heart of policy decisions, and such models are having an increasing role in supporting decisions associated with livestock infections. Read more

Genomics-driven exploitation of aphid-killing bacteria as a source of novel biopesticides

Aphids are major insect pests of agriculture and horticulture, causing damage to many economically important crop plants through direct feeding and/or as efficient vectors of numerous plant viruses. Read more

Clock-watchER: Circadian coordination of the plant endoplasmic reticulum

The rotation of the Earth creates periodic day-night changes in environmental conditions such as light and temperature. Organisms are able to adapt to these predictable diurnal cycles through their internal timekeeping system, the circadian clock, which has a periodicity of approximately 24 hours. Read more

Choreographing plant disease; pathogen effector manipulation of organelles – the view from inside

Biotic stress contributes disproportionately to crop losses, accounting for in excess of 25% of global yield. Thus, developing novel approaches to restricting pathogen infections of crops and consequently improving yields must be a key future objective for food security. Read more

Assessment and engineering of the Brassica self-incompatibility locus to enhance seed production

Genetic diversity enables species to adapt to changing environments. If a plant produces pollen that fertilises its own stigma, a process known as self-pollination, the resulting progeny will lose genetic diversity and could become inbred and thus less competitive. Read more

Plant mobile signals for long-lasting fruit protection

Rationale. Fruit decay due to postharvest diseases can claim up to 50% of total crop production. Pesticides can control these diseases but their use postharvest is extremely limited due to toxicity. Read more

Microbial degradation and environmental fate of pesticides in a changing climate

We invite applicants for a 4-year iCASE studentship to work in collaboration with our industrial partner Syngenta. Pesticides are essential in crop production due to their role in improving crop yield and food security. Read more

Pursue your passion with a funded PhD, Make Portsmouth your place

Your research degree will be the most important work of your life so far – and possibly the most challenging. We're here to help make your research journey an exceptional experience. Read more

Elucidating the fate of iron and copper based nanofertilizer in soil-plant system using isotope labelling and synchrotron techniques

Nanotechnology is a rapidly advancing enabling technology with the potential to revolutionize modern life. More recently, the application of nanotechnology in agriculture has garnered significant attention due to its high potential to facilitate sustainable agriculture and enhance food security. Read more

Enhancing food security through understanding stress adaptation in species used for biocontrol

This project will investigate the thermal biology and stress physiology of insect or mite species that represent candidate biocontrol agents for crop pests in glasshouses as well as other applications. Read more

A green future: developing Fusarium disease resistance for healthy and sustainable leafy green vegetable crops

Leafy green brassica vegetables such as collards, kale and cabbage are important crops worldwide with considerable health properties as they are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, fibre, and antioxidants which are known for their anti-cancer properties. Read more
