PhD Scholarship: Genetic analysis of ascorbate and glutathione functions in grapevine

PhD scholarship
Genetic analysis of ascorbate and glutathione functions in grapevine
This PhD project with the Considine group will contribute to an ARC Discovery Project at the University of Western Australia, which partners with CSIRO (Adelaide) and the University of Birmingham (UK).
The Considine group study the developmental genetics and genomics of fruit trees, particularly grapevine. The importance of dormancy and quiescence in sustainable production of tree crops is widely misunderstood as simply an avoidance of inconvenient weather conditions. Quiescence also plays a key role in enabling energy reserves necessary for flowering and fruiting, as well as regulation of canopy structure. This project will contribute strategically through pioneering development of novel genetic lines in grapevine, and their analysis.
