Project Description

Plant biology has never been as relevant. Chloroplasts underpin two central impacts of plants for humanity: as food source and carbon sink. Yet a surprising number of aspects of chloroplast biology remain poorly understood. Chloroplast development is under the control of the plant cell’s nucleus. It is also subject to inter-organellar, chloroplast-to-nucleus communication. This project will execute two novel genetic screens targeting: agents of plastid-to-nucleus communication; positive nuclear regulators of chloroplast development. This joint project, RHUL / ICL, demands true love of genetics and of molecular cell biology.

Funding Notes

The studentship covers: an annual tax-free stipend at the standard Research Council rate, contribution towards research costs, and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.
