EASTBIO: Genetic drivers of gene expression in chicken

Decoding the molecular function of chicken genomes and their variation across animals is fundamental to understand the cellular mechanisms underpinning economically important traits, and to improve and tailor genomic prediction within and across populations. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Dynamics of neurogenesis during spinal cord regeneration

About 1200 people a year are left paralysed in the UK due to a Spinal Cord Injury (or SCI). This is because injuries involving the central nervous system (CNS) have poor capacity to repair or regenerate, thus resulting in a permanent loss of function. Read more

EASTBIO: How cells build the intestine

Organs generate their own shapes during embryonic development through the production and precise placement of cells. The intestine, uniquely, takes the shape of a long tube, crucial for nutrient absorption by ensuring that a high surface area is attained before birth. Read more

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).
