PhD position ‘Meiotic control of recombination in crops’

Plant breeding has progressed enormously over the last decades, but the development of new varieties is very time consuming as it depends on meiotic recombination to generate crossovers and thus genetic variation. In the EU Horizon 2020 INNOVATIVE TRAINING NETWORKS (ITN) programme, the Meiotic Control of Recombination in Crops (MEICOM) project will build on earlier research, in (among others) Arabidopsis and tomato, to study crossover formation in crops and to devise ways of influencing the frequency and location of crossovers. Within this project, you will study meiotic recombination crossover profiles using genome bioinformatics and machine learning methods. Your task will be to analyse crossover formation in crop genomes using novel combinations of high-throughput sequencing (Illumina, PacBio, Oxford Nanopore, 10X Genomics) and optical mapping (BioNano Genomics) data, to learn about crossover frequency in haplotypes, genome structure and structural variation in parental lines and offspring of crops such as tomato, potato, melon, and lettuce. Sequence and genome structural data will be mined using machine learning techniques to find features influencing recombination. With project partners, you will then study the link between structural diversity, genetic diversity and cross over frequency with variation for particular agronomic important traits.

As an ITN researcher, you will be offered a number of secondments to partners (University of Amsterdam; University of Birmingham; SESVanDerHave, Belgium) and enjoy regular ITN meetings. Furthermore, you’ll have the opportunity to actively communicate and promote your research via international meetings and, if applicable, at private parties such as breeding companies.
