The evolutionary dynamics of mitochondrial genes; a modelling study in how reproduction strategies affect fitness

Mitochondria transitioned from free-living bacteria to obligate symbionts of eukaryotic cells. In this process they gave up a good part of their genome (either lost or transferred to the nucleus of their host cell) and their reproductive independence, which is controlled by the nucleus. Read more

Identification of core and regulatory haustorial proteins of powdery mildews for crop protection by novel silencing approaches of genes involved in plant susceptibility, biotrophy or virulence

The ultimate goal of this PhD project is to devise disease control strategies alternative to GM or traditional fungicide treatments to protect plants against powdery mildews, which are major biotrophic fungal pathogens affecting many valuable food crops, including cereals, strawberry, cucurbits or pea.

Forest diversity effects on wood ants

Wood ants (Formica spp) play a keystone role in boreal forest ecosystems by influencing the structure and composition of soil and forest floor vegetation as well as the abundance of other ground-dwelling arthropods and invertebrate foliar herbivores. Read more

Understanding the mechanisms underlying herbicide synergy

Herbicide synergies are desirable, allowing lower application rates, or frequency of treatments, reducing the incidence of herbicide resistance and conferring effects across a greater range of weed species. Read more

Understanding the cell and molecular mechanism of natural and synthetic bioactive compounds in health and medicine

The molecular mechanism of many chemicals and bioactive natural products remain unclear, despite wide use these chemicals as medicines or traditional remedies for the treatment diseases or as antibiotics, in food supplements, and in the agrochemical industry. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Modelling dementia-related synaptic dysfunction in the fruit-fly Drosophila melanogaster

Background. Almost a million of people in the UK live with dementia. Alzheimer’s disease (AD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) are the most common causes of neurodegenerative dementias. Read more
