Graduate Student Opportunity - Wilkins Lab

12 Jan 2022 13:13 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Two graduate positions in plant systems biology are available in the Wilkins laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba.  

The Wilkins lab is interested in understanding how plants process environmental information using gene regulatory networks. We use a variety of functional genomics assays (bulk tissue and single cell) and computational approaches to probe these questions. We apply RNA-sequencing, open chromatin mapping, and proteomic assays to study how individual cells, tissues, organs, and whole plants respond to climate change associated stressors like high temperatures and drought.  

The graduate projects will focus on characterizing spatial and temporal patterns of regulated gene expression in rice, canola, or soybean and may include some field-based experiments. Within this research topic, students will be encouraged to develop their own lines of inquiry through discussion with Dr. Wilkins and other laboratory team members.
