Professor of Crop Science and Director of Crop Sciences, Faculty of Science
Current research programmes, recent publications etc are available on the Portal for the laboratory of Professor Holdsworth: HERE
Research programmes focus on:
Understanding the control of seed germination and seedling establishment.
Systems approaches, integrating genetics, post-genomics, physiology, mathematics, computer science and engineering, are being used to understand and manipulate plant development and environmental responses.
Emphasis is placed on the transfer of molecular genetic information from studies in model species such as Arabidopsis and rice, to address important agricultural problems associated with plant developmental biology and response to abiotic stress.
The Virtual Seed Web Resource vseed.nottingham.ac.uk:
This online resource provides queryable interfaces for Gene Networks associated with seed development, dormancy and germination. Users can zoom into networks, search and highlight genes of interest and download images of network representations.
Teaching interests: Current Issues in Crop Science - Genetic Improvement of Crop Plants - Plant Developmental Genetics - Brewing
