Highly Efficient and Thermotolerant Wheat (HEAT-WHEAT)

Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2018,

Meeting the needs for a growing food security in a changing climate is currently one the key challenges for agricultural research, particularly theimpact of heat waves on food production. Photosynthesis is arguably the greatest contributor to crop yield and its reduction will severely affect foodproduction. Photosynthesis is highly susceptible to even moderately elevated temperatures and susceptib ...

Chromatin in Plants – European Training and Mobility (CHIP-ET)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

... development and stress tolerance will be analyzed in the Arabidopsis plant model and will then be further tested in maize in order to generate Intellectual Property and licensing opportunities. The Bayer Crop Science industrial partner will modulate these genes in canola (oilseed rape) in order to improve field performance and yield. Four research objectives have been defined: (1) Biochemistry and ...

Calcium- and light signals in photosynthetic organisms (CALIPSO)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

... fic expertise combined with industrial applications is one of the major strengths of CALIPSO, exposing the participating researchers to different “schools of thought”. The active participation of Bayer CropScience Gent and Ecoduna as full network partners, and Photon Systems Instruments as associated partner, will enable intersectorial industry-academia cooperation with the long term objectives of ...

 FINISHED 
Most plants use the C3 pathway of photosynthesis that is compromised by gross inefficiencies in CO2 fixation. However, some plants use a super-charged photosynthetic mechanism called C4 photosynthesis. The C4 pathway is used by the most productive vegetation and crops on Earth. In addition to faster photosynthesis, C4 plants demand less water and less nitrogen. Overall, our aim is to introduce the ...

The Plant Cell Wall Training Consortium (WallTraC)

Start date: Jun 1, 2011, End date: Feb 29, 2016,

"Plant cell walls constitute a highly complex and dynamic entity of extreme importance in plant growth and development. Growing cell walls can be considered as ""fibre composites"", where cellulose microfibrils are embedded in a matrix of complex glycans. It is becoming increasingly apparent (i) that cell wall glycans are diverse in structural terms, (ii) that these structures are developmentally ...

Metabolic Reprogramming by Induction of Transcription (MERIT)

Start date: Jan 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2014,

Plants continually monitor the environment to modify physiology and development at the molecular level to ensure maximal fitness. Central in the signaling network is the SnRK1 kinases (homologous to AMPK and SNF1 in mammals and yeast respectively). These kinases are vital to the energy balance of the organism and regulate primary metabolism by controlling transcription factors, which control the e ...

Industrial Crops producing added value Oils for Novel chemicals (ICON)

Start date: Mar 1, 2008, End date: Feb 28, 2013,

Replacing fossil oil with renewable resources is perhaps the most urgent need and the most challenging task that human society faces today. Cracking fossil hydrocarbons and building the desired chemicals with advanced organic chemistry usually requires many times more energy than is contained in the final product. Thus, using plant material in the chemical industry does not only replace the fossil ...

Chloroplast Signals (COSI)

Start date: Jul 1, 2008, End date: Jun 30, 2012,

"COSI integrates young researchers in a network of 10 leading European research centres, including Bayer BioScience as industrial partner. We aim at identification of regulatory principles governing chloroplast metabolism, a crucial factor for agricultural productivity. Specifically we want to identify chloroplast-related protein kinases and their targets and associated calcium signals. A long ter ...
