|GARNet Research Roundup: December 7th 2018|
The first four papers in this GARNet Research Roundup includes research from Norwich Research Park. Firstly members of Jonathan Jones’ lab have identified a new Avr gene from Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidis. Secondly Anne Osbourn’s lab characterises two novel arabinosyltransferases that are involved in the plant defence response. Thirdly Cathie Martin’s group is involved in a study that investigates the biosynthesis of the metabolite... READ MORE ...
|GARNet Research Roundup: November 22nd 2018|
This GARNet Research Roundup begins with two studies from the University of Sheffield. First is research from Jurriaan Ton’s lab that looks at the interaction between CO2 concentration, the soil microbiome and plant growth. The second paper from Matt Davey and Peter Quick looks at the effect of cold acclimation on freezing tolerance in Arabidpsis lyrata.
The third study includes authors from Dundee and Durham and also looks at an... READ MORE ...
|GARNet Research Roundup: November 1st 2018|
This week’s GARNet research roundup again features papers on a variety of topics. First is work from the University of Leeds that investigates the physical properties of callose:cellulose hydrogels and the implication for cell wall formation. Second is work from the University of York that assesses the role of the HSP90.2 protein in control of the circadian clock. The third paper features GARNet committee member Sarah McKim and looks at the genetic... READ MORE ...
|GARNet Research Roundup: October 19th 2018|
This edition of the GARNet research roundup includes six papers that look at different areas of plant biology. Firstly is a Belgian-led study with co-authors from Nottingham that introduces adaptive Xerobranching, a cereal-root response that can be mimicked in Arabidopsis by modulating ABA signaling. Second is study from Juriaan Ton’s lab in Sheffield that investigates the extent of DNA methylation during transgenerational acquired disease... READ MORE ...
|GARNet Research Roundup: October 10th 2018|
This edition of the GARNet research roundup begins with a paper from Jose Gutierrez-Marcos’ lab in Warwick that investigates the functional significance of inherited epigenetics marks in clonally propagated plants. Second is work from Sara Simonini and Lars Ostergaard (John Innes Centre) that defines a domain in the ETTIN protein important for the auxin response. Next is work from SLCU from Siobhan Braybrook and Henrik Jonsson that experimentally... 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 ...
