    Myzus persicae (the green peach aphid) is a highly successful generalist insect, capable of feeding on hundreds of plant species, including various important crops such as wheat, rice and potato. Part of success of this aphid is thought to be down to its ability to suppress the host plant’s defence. We know that aphid feeding results in the generation of defence signals in plants that leads to defence gene induction (1), but the link between the initial feeding, this signalling, and gene induction remains unclear. This project will use a combination of approaches to start to unravel this mystery.

    Calcium is known to act as a stress signal in plants, spreading throughout tissues upon the perception of a stimulus (2). Through the use of fluorescent reporters we can track these signals in response to aphids, and through the transcriptomics we can identify the downstream defence induction. In this project, the candidate will use the electrophysiology technique electro-penetration graph (EPG) to measure and quantify aphid feeding behaviour. Using microscopy, the candidate will track the calcium signals initiated by such feeding, and using the latest transcriptomic techniques they will help identify the key defence genes activated during this interaction. As such, the candidate will receive a broad training in insect and plant genetics, electrophysiology, molecular and cellular biology, and the analysis of large data sets.
