How does salt stress affect plant lateral root development?
Plant development is highly responsive to specific conditions that the plant experiences. Salt stress is one of the major threats for modern agriculture. Salt stress has massive impacts on plant root growth and root morphology. La ...

Investigating the role of phytohormone cytokinin in lateral root development under salt stress
Soil salinity is detrimental to crop production and agriculture. Plants can not move around like animals to avoid the unfavourable soil environments since they are rooted into the soil. However, they have evolved adaptation strat ...

Are the transcriptome and translatome during seed germination predictive for the proteome composition?
Seed germination is one of the most important developmental phase transitions during the plant life cycle. While dry seeds contain transcripts for over 12,000 genes, gene expression is completely shut down. During germination gene ...

Cloning of Delay of Germination 2
Seed dormancy displays a quantitative trait nature, thus its regulators were identified as QTL (quantitative trait loci) in many recombinant inbred line (RIL) populations. These QTLs were named Delay Of Germination (DOGs), of whic ...

Sweet and salty: how sugar contributes to salt tolerance
Salinity is a major and increasing problem for agriculture (Rengasamy, 2006). The loss of arable land, together with reduced crop production by salinity, poses a serious challenge to agricultural sustainability and food production ...

Determining the mechanisms behind seed longevity
In brief, the PhD project aims to determine the mechanisms defining seed longevity (storability). Within the PhD project, multiple student projects are possible, depending on the duration of the thesis/internship and when you can  ...

Functional characterization of a novel protein in control of seed dormancy and longevity
Seed dormancy and longevity are two important traits for both seed storage and production. Therefore, the identification of novel genes related to seed dormancy and longevity is crucial for improving seed quality. Recently, we hav ...

Exploring Solanaceae genomes for the presence of gene clusters that encode for secondary metabolites important for plant resilience
Upon biotic stress, plants adapt their metabolome to cope with their attackers. We study how plants regulate the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites related to these adaptations. An important class of secondary metabolites in Ca ...

The possible role of Lectin receptor-like kinases (LecRLKs) in salt sensing
Aim: Functional characterization of Lectin receptor-like kinases in plant salt sensing. Salt sensing is the initial step in salt-stress signalling pathways that may control plan salt tolerance. However, how plants sense the sodiu ...

Regulation of herbivory-induced terpenoids & green leaf volatiles, characterization of gene function using virus-induced gene silencing in capsicum
In response to herbivory, plants release a complex blend of volatiles providing valuable cues for herbivores and their natural enemies. This herbivory-induced plant volatile (HIPV) profile emitted after e.g. spider-mite or thrips  ...
