Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment.

Landscape genomics and local adaptation in livestock species

Most livestock species originated in a few localities, e.g. the Fertile Crescent or the Indus Valley among others. However, today, many of those species have spread to many environments around the planet. Read more

Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Read more

Adaptive thermal comfort in office buildings: an Adaptive Predict Mean Vote model

In recent years, adaptive thermal comfort studies played a positive role in sustainability in buildings. The exploration of thermal adaptation in different regions, different types of buildings, and different demographic groups are the research trend internationally. Read more

Natural Language Processing for Text Adaptation [Self-Funded Students Only]

  Research Group: Data and Knowledge Engineering
Lots of informative publicly available content is written in a language that may not be easy to understand by everyone. For example, the latest research on a disease, terms and conditions for using an app, documents in public administration, etc. Read more

Past cultural adaptation to abrupt Holocene climate change in the Peruvian Andes

The relatively stable climate of the Holocene period has been interspersed with abrupt climate events (ACEs) – periods often lasting as little as 100 years with significant reduction in temperature. Read more

Defining the metabolic and neuromuscular mechanisms of skeletal muscle adaptation to reduced physical activity and subsequent recovery throughout adult lifespan

  Research Group: PENRG - Physiology Exercise and Nutrition Research Group
Physical inactivity is the 4th leading cause of death in the world. People with the highest prolonged sedentary time have greater chance of developing health problems such as cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes, and a greater risk of dying younger. Read more

To feast among the starving: computational bioenergetic modelling of Mycobacterium avium

This project seeks to advance the frontiers of bioscience discovery by improving our understanding of how thermodynamic constraints can limit bacterial adaptation to challenging environments. Read more
