The use of novel mass spectrometry imaging techniques to understand the metabolic basis of resistance and susceptibility of sunflower cultivars infected with the parasitic weed Orobanche cumana

Please note that the job is no longer active!


Orobanche species are root holoparasitic weeds that infest many important crop species across Europe and North Africa including tomatoes, peas, potatoes and sunflower causing yield losses of 20 to 100%. Despite the importance of this parasite to European agriculture relatively little is known about the metabolic basis of different types of resistance mechanisms yet such information is critical to the design of novel control strategies. In this project the student will opti...
