PhD projects

By training Jeremy Pritchard is a plant physiologist, but the recent rise of genetic technologies has revolutionised his research, so that now he also works in the more molecular areas.

His core research is aimed at understanding how plants regulate the transport of water, sugars and salts. As with the human genome, the genetic information of many plants has been sequenced, but like humans, we know very little about what the all the DNA does. To find out, his group genetically modifies plants to understand the function of the different genes. Their work has many applications, from producing agricultural plants that are more tolerant of salt and drought, through to those that are less palatable to herbivores such as aphids.
