|GARNet Research Roundup: September 24th 2019|
Due to a significant delay this GARNet Research Roundup is a bumper overview of recent(ish) publications across discovery-led plant science, which have at least one contributor from a UK institution.
These can be (very) loosely separated into the following categories:
Circadian Clock: Greenwood et al, PloS Biology. Belbin et al, Nature Communications.
Environmental responses:... READ MORE ...
|Relaunch of the GARNet Community Podcast!|
Welcome to the relaunch of the GARNet Community podcast!
We aim to send out a short weekly podcast in which we chat to a researcher about a latest publication. These will be audio-only podcast without any associated YouTube video. Over the coming weeks we will discuss new papers with Charlotte Kirchelle at the University of Oxford, Mike Skelly at University of Edinburgh and Dana MacGregor at Rothamsted Research.
This first podcast... READ MORE ...
|GARNet Research Roundup: August 16th 2019|
This holiday-time edition of the GARNet research roundup begins with
The third paper
|GARNet Research Roundup: July 26th 2019|
This summer-time-reading bumper edition of the GARNet Research Roundup begins with two papers from the University of Sheffield that each use advanced imaging techniques. Firstly Andrew Fleming’s group leads a study on the link between stomatal function and mesophyll space morphology. Second is a study from Matthew Johnson’s group that looks at the dynamic arrangement of thylakoid stacks.
Next are two papers that... READ MORE ...
|GARNet Research Roundup: July 5th 2019|
This edition of the GARNet research roundup begins with a study from the University Leicester that investigates the rate of selection of genes expressed in Arabidopsis pollen.
The second and third papers focus on the function of members of the AP2 family of transcription factors. Sarah McKim’s lab in Dundee characterizes the role of APETALA2 during barley stem elongation whilst the other paper investigates the function of the... READ MORE ...
|Postdoc position in plant genomics at New York University|
We are looking for a postdoc scientist to join Carol Huang’s lab at New York University (https://huanglab.rbind.io) in the heart of Manhattan.
ABOUT THE LAB
Our lab uses both “dry”- and “wet”-lab genomics methods to study gene regulation at the systems level. Specifically, we are interested in understanding how the repertoire of genome and epigenome variations... READ MORE ...
|Multiple Research Associate positions at MSU-DOE Plant Research Lab|
Two research associate, post-doc, positions are available in the Brandizzi lab at the Plant Research Laboratory at Michigan State University. The positions are available immediately and they are for two years with the possibility of an extension depending on availability of funding. The positions focus on the study of the biology of endomembranes in plants. The project will employ molecular and biological approaches to define the function of newly... READ MORE ...
|MS or PhD Positions in Plant Biology|
Graduate research assistant positions (MS or PhD) are available in the Erin Sparks laboratory in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. Research in the Sparks lab revolves around the development and function of aerial roots in maize called brace roots. We use genetics, histology, molecular biology, mechanical testing, image analysis, physiology, phenotyping, and computational modeling to understand:... READ MORE ...
|Postdoc Position - Computational Network Biology in Plants|
The Comparative Network Biology lab (Klaas Vandepoele) of the VIB Center for Plant Systems Biology is looking for a Postdoc Computational Network Biology in Plants.
Our objective is to extract and validate biological knowledge from large-scale experimental data sets using data integration, comparative sequence and expression analysis, and network analysis. In our lab, we combine computational methods with experimental... READ MORE ...
|PhD position in Plant Molecular and Developmental Biology|
A PhD student position is available in the research group of Dr. Tomas Werner at the Institute of Plant Sciences, University of Graz, Austria (https://botanik.uni-graz.at/de/forschung/molecular-plant-physiology). The group is interested in understanding the molecular basis that underlie the biological activity of the plant hormone cytokinin.
The open PhD... READ MORE ...
