Hutton scientist awarded grant to explore genetic pathway to better barley

Dr Isabelle Colas was awarded a New Investigator grant by UKRI
"This research will help demonstrate the first known mechanism controlling recombination in barley and promises to reveal a new way to influence the breeding of large genome crops"
The new research will explore a genetic pathway to improved barley crops

Dr Isabelle Colas, a scientist of the International Barley Hub, has been awarded a New Investigator grant worth £400k by UK Research and Innovation to explore a genetic pathway to improved barley crops, with the ultimate aim of helping breeders develop future varieties suited to the needs of growers and industry.
