ParaHox homeobox genes in chordate evo-devo.

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
This project will use a comparative approach to dissect regulatory mechanisms and functions of the chordate ParaHox genes (Gsx, Xlox/Pdx1 and Cdx), analysing regulation of these genes in the invertebrate chordates, amphioxus (Branchiostoma) and the sea squirt (Ciona intestinalis), and a vertebrate (the chicken Gallus gallus).

QUADRAT DTP: Ecological drivers and conservation implications of parental care diversity in vertebrates

There are astonishing differences in whether, how, and how long for, animals care for their offspring. In most species, such as many marine fishes, parents abandon their fertilized eggs to their own destiny, which is mostly being eaten by predators. Read more

EASTBIO Investigating the effects of plasmid-borne mutagenic DNA polymerases on the evolution of antibiotic resistance.

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Antibiotics from the b-lactam family have been a cornerstone of both human and animal medicine but with increasing bacterial resistance to many first and second-line drugs, clinicians are forced to use b-lactams of ‘last resort’, such as carbapenems. Read more

Hindcasting faunal distributions in the Holocene to understand interactions between ancient societies, biodiversity and climate

BACKGROUND. Faced with the urgent challenge of predicting the consequences of current and future climate change, it is imperative that we seek to learn lessons about climate-animal-human relations from the long-term records available from the past. Read more

PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth. Read more

How does the environment impact female control of fertilisation?

In internally-fertilising animals, the female reproductive tract is the arena in which sperm compete to fertilise eggs. This provides females with enormous potential to control fertilisation after mating, and a female’s anatomy, physiology and behaviour can all work together to select some sperm over others.

A multidisciplinary approach to understanding the evolution of human healthcare networks

Human healthcare networks are unique in the animal kingdom. While many species provide care to kin (genetic relatives), humans are the only species which also provide widespread, cooperative care to strangers (i.e., doctors, nurses). Read more
