Background. Crop breeding has changed the nutritional, mineral and non-nutritional composition of crop plants. Non-nutritionals include metabolites such as polyphenols and these have historically been considered as ‘anti-nutritionals’, reflecting their effect upon animal health when fed as major components in diets.

Sex and sperm wars: the behavioural component of infertility

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Why is infertility so common? From both evolutionary and mechanistic perspectives, infertility remains a puzzle. Read more

Unravelling molecular signatures of oocyte developmental competence in cattle

This project addresses a significant global problem. Rapid human population growth coupled with a projected decrease in food production due to climate change, highlights the critical role that efficient and sustainable animal production must play in achieving food security. Read more

Assessing the costs of building in birds

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Building an appropriate nest is key to reproductive success for most birds. Indeed nests themselves are familiar objects, while their contents (eggs and then chicks) are not just familiar but have been a focus for considerable investigation. Read more

Applying innovative genomic analyses to infer selection in admixed populations of livestock and companion animals

Studying the genomes of admixed individuals (hybrids) from genetically distinct populations is an important area of research for understanding the formation of new species and for identifying mechanisms of adaptation to different environments. Read more

Identification of host factors underpinning resistance against swine influenza

IAV is a critically important pathogen in terms of human health, food security and animal welfare. Despite coordinated international surveillance and control strategies, IAV regularly causes globally significant outbreaks of disease2. Read more
