The Uauy lab is focused on using genetics and genomics to improve both yield and quality components in wheat.
Their research comes under four main areas;
- Increasing yields
- Improving crop quality
- Disease resistance
- Genomic enabled technologies
- 100 trillion miracles
The lab uses molecular genetic approaches to identify genes involved in wheat productivity traits and enhance the translation of this knowledge into improved varieties for industry and consumers.
They aim to understand the mechanisms by which these genes function in order to develop the most rational strategies to deploy these genes into commercial varieties.
We do not have current openings, but enquiries to join the group from interested Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Scientists are always welcomed.
Fellowship and PhD studentship positions can potentially be funded by the BBSRC, EU or John Innes Centre.
