Wageningen UR – PhD position ‘Meiotic control of recombination in crops’

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. Continue reading
