We are looking for a PhD student to work on our Solanum chilense project. The project is aimed at understanding the diversity and evolution of pathogen defence responses in different populations. In this particular project we will look at genomic and transcriptomic diversity of generic early defence responses and will try to link them to read outs on phytohormone changes and defence-associated secondary metabolites. http://remcostam.com/StellenausschreibungSTAM2021b.pdf We are always looking for Msc students interested in doing an internship or MSc thesis. The projects can be a mix of lab and computational work.
