PhD project ESR (2): 'Development of wheat varieties with reduced gluten toxicity, increasing safety for celiac disease patients'

Please note that the job is no longer active!

ESR project 2 stems from collaboration between WU-PBR and NIAB-TAG to search for natural sources of gluten with reduced toxicity for celiac disease patients. Variation is sought in protein epitopes of the gliadin genes located on the D genome (chromosome 6D) which are known to be particularly toxic for celiac patients. Two reverse genetic strategies are proposed for the current project. Cutting-edge site directed mutagenesis with Transcription Activator-Like Effector Nuclease (TALEN) constructs ...
