The honours student will profile barley GIPCs using sphingolipidomics. They will also use CRIPSR/Cas9 gene editing to develop a barley line with an altered GIPC glycan headgroup, for comparison to the Arabidopsis mutant.
Plant physiologists have studied the single plant, and agronomists have looked at the whole crop, but the plant within the community has scarcely been investigated. Whilst evolution favours competitive phenotypes, agriculture selects for phenotypes with lower competitive ability or a communal behaviour.
Honours project: Investigate the toxins produced by Pyrenophora teres that cause net blotch disease in barley.
Honours project: Join a team of researchers to evaluate the potential of soybeans to be grown in South Australia.
Honours project: Various projects suitable for students interested in learning more about plant breeding, genetics, molecular biology, abiotic and biotic stress, and/or plant reproduction.
Honours project: In collaboration with AE Cranwell & Sons, investigate the causes of oedema in brussel sprouts.
