דרושים סטודנטים לתארים מתקדמים

15 פברואר, 2019

למעבדה של ד"ר אסף לוי

דרושים סטודנטים לתארים מתקדמים (מאסטר\דוקטורט)

פתחתי את המעבדה שלי במחלקה למחלות צמחים ומיקרוביולוגיה בספטמבר 2018. אנו חוקרים במעבדה אינטראקציות בין חיידקים לבין אורגניזמים בסביבתם, כולל חיידקים, צמחים וחרקים. אנו מתמקדים בגנטיקה שעומדת בבסיס אינטראקציות אלו ומנסים לגלות פונקציות חדשות. המעבדה הינה רב-תחומית ומשלבת מיקרוביולוגיה, ביולוגיה מולקולרית, ביולוגיה חישובית (ביואינפורמטיקה), גנטיקה ומדעי הצמח. דוגמאות לפרויקטים קיימים במעבדה:

Rapid and drastic environmental, demographic and economic changes are putting an increasing burden on agriculture worldwide, threatening food security.
The Hebrew University's Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment in Rehovot takes part in the search for solutions for tomorrow's agriculture. The interdisciplinary hub for Next Generation Agriculture allies theoretical, complex systems, and big data integration approaches from single cells to agricultural ecosystems to create innovative developments and applications. Join us in the quest.
