We have a master's thesis to offer in the field of plant storage organ development!

You are interested in plant development and want to understand how plant organs are shaped?

You want to work on an interdisciplinary research project and learn fancy plant phenotyping methods?

We are looking for a dedicated and motivated student to analyze tuber development in yam. Yam is a nutritious tuber crop with high importance for global food security. The project will involve magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of underground plant organs, as well as molecular gene expression analysis and chemical characterization assays.
