Prof Rosie Bradshaw

Professor in Genetics

Institute of Fundamental Sciences

Associate Professor Rosie Bradshaw was appointed as a genetics lecturer in 1991. She is an enthusiastic teacher of cell biology, genetics and molecular plant pathology and has organised and run workshops on DNA technology and fungal genomics. Starting her research career in the UK studying the genetics of fungal Aspergillus spp. and yeasts, she turned her attention to the pine needle pathogen Dothistroma septosporum after moving to New Zealand. As well as elucidating the genetics of an aflatoxin-like toxin (dothistromin) made by this fungus, she published the genome sequence of D. septosporum in a comparative study with that of the model plant pathogen Cladosporium fulvum. Associate Professor Bradshaw is a principal investigator in the BioProtection Research Centre, a National Centre of Research Excellence and a Management Committee member for the Dothistroma European COST Action FP1102. In 2012 she was awarded a Willie Commelin Scholten Foundation Visiting Chair of Phytopathology in The Netherlands.

Research Expertise

Research Interests

Associate Professor Bradshaw's main research focus is the application of molecular and comparative genomics tools to study how fungi interact with plants. Her group is interested in plant pathogens, endophytes, forest pathology, mycotoxins, fungal gene clusters and biocontrol. As part of an initiative by the Dothideomycete Comparative Genomics Consortium and the Joint Genome Institute, she was PI for the project to sequence the genome of the pine needle pathogen Dothistroma septosporum. The Bradshaw laboratory elucidated the genetics of dothistromin toxin biosynthesis and discovered it is a virulence factor in needle blight disease. They also found that dothistromin genes are unusual in being dispersed across one chromosome in a 'fragmented cluster' and gathered evidence that this is a fragmented form of a tighter ancestral aflatoxin-like gene cluster.

The Bradshaw laboratory's research interests also extend to endophytes, including a project using endophytes to 'immunise' pine trees against disease. In other projects involving endophytes of grass, the group is investigating the molecular basis of how endophytes confer drought tolerance to their plant hosts, as well as the molecular mechanisms of the unusual fungal phenomenon of intercalary growth.

Project Title: Keeping New Zealand grass green

Drought is one of the greatest environmental stresses to pasture production in New Zealand and is made worse by climate change. It is known that a fungus, Neotyphodium lolii, that lives as an endophyte inside perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) can enhance drought tolerance. However, very little is known about how the endophyte improves grass drought tolerance and why this effect varies among grass genotypes. Knowing this will help us make better use of endophytes, such as selecting and using specific endophyte-grass combinations in arid areas. Therefore, we conducted a high-throughput RNA sequencing experiment to study gene expression in two N. lolii infected perennial ryegrass genotypes with different drought tolerance profiles, along with clonal endophyte-free grasses. The grasses were grown in a controlled environment growth chamber. Analysis of the gene expression results showed that the fungal endophyte increases perennial ryegrass drought tolerance by adjusting many aspects of the plant's metabolism that facilitate the survival of the plant. The fungal endophyte itself also had modified gene expression under drought and showed increased production of metabolites with the capability of reducing grass cell damage under drought. Further characterisation of specific grass and endophyte genes will be carried out in the future.
