PhD Disease resistance in hybrid wheat

This project will provide training in cutting-edge technologies in wheat including molecular biology, plant physiology, field-trial design, hybrid production and genomics. We will take advantage of the suite of functional genomic tools for wheat which we have developed including genome sequences (International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium, Science, 2018), mutant populations (Krasileva et al., PNAS, 2017) and expression atlases (Ramirez-Gonzalez et al., Science, 2018)).
