Durham and Liverpool unite to win share of BBSRC’s £14 million “rules of life” call.

Two N8 AgriFood institutions have joined forces to successfully win a share of BBSRC’s latest £14 million funding call.

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) selected four teams of investigators in the UK after a call for researchers who would carry out long-term, large-scale and interdisciplinary programmes with the ambitious goal of discovering new rules of life.

Among the successful bids is ‘SUMOcode: deciphering how SUMOylation enables plants to adapt to their environment’.
