Promotion of plant growth and stress resilience by beneficial microbes Ny
Growth of the world population in combination with yield reductions due to climate change scenarios requires alternatives for sustainable increase in agricultural food, feed and energy production with reduction of agrochemicals.
Natural fungal disease resistance in oat, MSc, BSc or PUK Ny
We aim to identify genes that confer resistance against devastating fungal diseases in cereals, exacerbated by climate change. The focus is on Fusarium and on identification of plant genes that detoxify its harmful toxins.
Plant pathogen interaction Ny
Application of a holistic phenomics approach to analyse mechanisms that determine the resistance of crop plants against fungal pathogens within climate change related environmental factors such as drought.
Regulation of gene expression through lncRNAs Ny
Are you easily seduced by the power of science? Come to the dark side! In Marquardt lab, we study the ‘’dark side’’ of RNAPII transcription of non-coding DNA in plants as a response to environmental changes.
PREPARE CHILD – Pre-Pregnancy weight loss And the Reducing Effect on CHILDhood overweight Ny
We are looking for students who want to be part of the PREPARE CHILD team. The project is a randomized controlled study that aims to include 240 couples. he expected start of the project is September/October 2022.
Biologicals, plant beneficial microbes and the second green revolution Ny
Alternative solutions in breeding and agriculture are needed for sustainable, environmentally friendly crop production to ensure stable yields within climate change scenarios under reduction of pesticides and inorganic fertilizers
Plant phenomics of resource allocation and carbohydrate partitioning Ny
The understanding of the partitioning of carbohydrate resources in a plant that determines growth, development and interaction with the multifactorial biotic and abiotic environment within climate change scenarios.
Molecular mechanisms of faithful chromosome replication Ny
Genome replication is the fundamental biological process required for the propagation of life. We use biochemical and structural methods (incl. cryo-EM) to study how molecular machines faithfully replicate eukaryotic chromosomes.
Proteomic analysis of heart failure samples Ny
Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is the new black in cardiology. You will analyze protein expression data from atria and ventricles from a mouse model of HFpEF.
