Professor Anna Amtmann

  • Professor for Molecular Plant Physiology (Institute of Molecular Cell and Systems Biology)

Biography

Anna studied mathematics, biology and linguistics at the Universities if Paris, Heidelberg, and Barcelona, and obtained an MSc in Biology and a PhD in Natural Sciences from the University of Göttingen, Germany. In her PhD project in the group of Dietrich Gradmann she investigated how unicellular marine algae maintain cellular homeostasis for calcium and sodium ions. Anna subsequently worked as a post-doc in the laboratory of Dale Sanders at the University of York, UK, where she studied ion transport proteins in barley and arabidopsis using a combination of electrophysiology and molecular biology. During the last two years at York she pioneered the use of microarrays to monitor transcriptional responses of ion transporters to nutrient deficiency and salinity. In 2001, Anna took up a Lecturer position at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, followed by promotion to Senior Lecturer in 2004 and to Professor in 2014.
Research in her group has continued to unravel the molecular mechanisms that enable plants to adapt to mineral nutrient deficiency, salinity and drought [1]. Current projects investigate the genetic and epigenetic determinants of plant stress tolerance and of root architectural changes under mineral nutrient deficiency. Collaboration with bio-informaticians, computer scientists and software developers has resulted in popular analysis pipelines for large ‘omics’ dataset as well as biometric software for large-scale phenotyping [2]. In collaboration with engineers, the group applies microfluidics technology in synthetic biology and marine bioprospecting projects. Anna has established a substantial portfolio of collaborative work with industrial partners based on the use of cyanobacteria as a chassis for the production of polymers, pigments and photo-switches. She is a member of the Scottish Industrial Biotechnology Development Group (SIBDG) and the Synthetic Biology Steering Group, which support the Scottish government in realising strategic plans for the bio-industries. Starting in 2018, Anna has taken on the role of Editor-in-Chief for Plant, Cell & Environment [4], one of the leading international plant science journals. Anna’s career path features on the ‘Parent-Carer-Scientist’ webpage of the Royal Society.

Research interests

Molecular mechanisms for mineral nutrition and salt/drought tolerance of plants

Why study mineral nutrition and salt/drought tolerance?

One of the major challenges for mankind in this century is to provide enough food for a rapidly expanding world population while preserving ecological and energy resources of our planet. According to the United Nations (2006) the world population will likely grow by 2.5 billion over the next 43 years, passing from the current 6.7 billion to 9.2 billion in 2050. A massive increase in crop production is required to meet the food demands of future generations; in 2020 the world agriculture will have to produce about 3.4 billion tons of cereals per year to meet the global demands. This increase in crop production has to come from:

  • Yield increase on existing arable land, which is limited by the (financial and ecological) costs of irrigation, fertilization and pest/disease control
  • Expansion of arable land, which is limited by global soil degradation in the form of erosion, nutrient depletion, water scarcity and salinity

To ensure rapid progress in both directions plant scientists have to work closely together with breeders and ecologists.

The contribution of our laboratory to global food security is to provide an understanding of the molecular mechanisms determining:

  • Nutrient usage efficiency
  • Salt and drought tolerance
  • Interaction between abiotic and biotic stress

Experimental research in the laboratory addresses specific questions in the following areas:

  • Ion & water homeostasis
  • Systems biology and metabolism
  • Nutrient sensing and root architecture
  • Transcriptional regulation and epigenetics
  • Cross-talk of abiotic and biotic stress responses


We apply a wide range of techniques and methodologies:

  • Molecular biology and genetics
  • High-throughput screening and phenomics
  • Microarrays and Illumina sequencing
  • ChIP and MeDIP
  • Microelectrodes and patch (voltage) clamp
  • Biochemistry and proteomics
  • Fluorescence imaging and laser microscopy

Experimental systems used in our research include:

  • Model species (Arabidopsis thaliana)
  • Extremophiles (Thellungiella halophila)
  • Crops (barley, Brassica sp)
  • Heterologous expression systems (Xenopus oocytes, yeast, insect and mammalian cell line)
