Searching for MSc students! Electrostimulation of plant growth and induction of cross-tolerance in oats

Can we use pulsed electric fields to stimulate the growth of plants for food? Can stress responses induced by electroporation make the plant more tolerant to drought? What if we can treat the seeds or the seedlings and make plants more resistant to the effect of climate change?

Help us to answer these questions while working on your master thesis!

This is a collaboration between SLU and Lund University. OptiCept Technologies in Lund will also be involved, and some experiments will be conducted at their premises.
