Research Projects Database

The Food Safety Research Information Office (FSRIO) operates the Research Projects Database (RPD). The RPD tracks food safety research that is funded by FSRIO-partner agencies (identified as Funding Sources below). The funding agencies are listed in the order of funded projects. The RPD is also searchable by the Category of the funded projects and the primary Commodity group of the funded project.

Objectives. We aim to radically change how crop diseases are being diagnosed through development of genome-based multi-pathogen diagnostics technologies and empower effective management of descriptive pathogens in the Fusarium genus through…
Bacterial blight, caused by the plant pathogenic bacterium Xanthomonas hortorum pv. carotae (Xhc), is an important seedborne disease of carrot. Our long-term goals are to improve our understanding of Xhc biology and bacterial blight epidemiology,…
The development and assessment of new crop cultivars is essential to ensure food security in a changing climate. In UK wheat, a relatively simple comparison of cultivars, at a relatively small number of sites, is used. However, this approach is…
In this project we will use a cmt3a DNA (methyl transferase) mutant to study epigenetic effects on gene expression and heritability in tomato. We will use cmt3a because other DNA methylation mutants (nrpd1, nrpe1, met1) are completely sterile and…
