Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, Germany
The Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics scientists are improving cereal crops’ ability to grow in tough environments using the latest biotechnology leading to higher yields and more nutritious crops. This research involves both genetic modification (GM) and non-GM techniques. Scientists and policy makers agree that improving food productivity is one part of the solution to global food security especially considering predicted climatic variability, decreases in arable land, urban encroachment and other impacting factors.
Automated non-destructive phenotyping of cereals for forward genetic discovery of genetic basis underlying variation in salinity tolerance traits.
Duke University has about 13,000 undergraduate and graduate students and a world-class faculty helping to expand the frontiers of knowledge. The university has a strong commitment to applying knowledge in service to society, both near its North Carolina campus and around the world.
ETH Zurich is one of the world’s leading universities for technology and the natural sciences. It has nearly 18,000 students from over 100 different countries, of whom 3,800 are doctoral students.
Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Agrarias, Spain
We are conducting field evaluation trials of the Salicornia inbred lines developed at KAUST in collaboration with ICBA Scientists
Nested association mapping population of barley, for forward genetic studies of traits that are hypothesised contribute to salinity tolerance
An internationally renowned institution, the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Medicine, which covers the broad scope of basic sciences, clinical sciences and public health, has the three-fold mission of teaching, research, and improvement of health.

The James Hutton Institute is an international research centre based in Scotland. The work we do is right at the top of the global agenda and involves tackling some of the world’s most challenging problems including the impact of climate change and threats to food and water security.
Biomolecules, cells, plants and animals are the center of teaching and research in the Department of  Biology at the University of Berne.
Our three Institutes of Cell Biology, Plant Sciences and Ecology & Evolution focus on biological processes reaching from the  molecular level to cell structures to plant and animal species and their communities.
Chemical genomics strategy for identifying genes enabling maintenance of root growth upon addition of salt.
The University of Seville is an institution that provides the public service of superior education by means of studies, teaching, and research, as well as the generation, development and diffusion of knowledge to serve citizens and society.
Proteomic study of vacuolar membrane from barley leaf mesophyll to identify salt-induced proteins that correlate with salt-induction of Na+/H+ antiporter activity.
Wageningen University is the only university in the Netherlands to focus specifically on the theme ‘healthy food and living environment’. We do so by working closely together with governments and the business community.
