Fully funded PhD opportunity on Understanding root microbiome associated with healthy and diseased plants, SoCoBio

The first objective for this PhD studentship is to carry out a meta-analysis of these NGS data to determine whether there are common features in microbial communities that are associated with diseased or healthy plants and, if so, characterise such features. For instance, one aspect of the meta-analysis could be the determination / comparison of microbial network relationships between disease and heathy plants at two different levels (amplicon and metagenomics sequences).
