PhD Genetic dissection of a complex immune locus in barley

This PhD project will be supervised by Dr. Matthew Moscou at The Sainsbury Laboratory. The Moscou group focuses on understanding the molecular basis of non-host Resistance, with the long-term goal of translating these discoveries into wheat to engineer resistance. This PhD will therefore provide an excellent training in molecular plant pathology, genetics, genomics, next-generation sequencing, and bioinformatics in a world-renowned environment for academic and research excellence.
