Sex, males, and hermaphrodites in the scale insect Icerya purchasi

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Summary. Organisms reproduce in diverse ways. Yet it is unclear why and how new reproductive strategies evolve. This project focuses on the only case of hermaphroditism in insects. Read more

EASTBIO: FarmGTEx: Genetic determinants of gene expression across farm animal tissues

Deciphering the molecular function of farm animal 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

EASTBIO Genomics and evolution of recombination rates in the Soay sheep of St Kilda

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
When animals and plants produce eggs or sperm, chromosome pairs will recombine (or ‘cross-over’) to create new combinations of alleles. Read more

EASTBIO Genomics of frog colouration and the role of sexual and natural selection in speciation

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Animal populations that use different adaptive strategies are an ideal study system to uncover processes involved in early stages of speciation. Read more

Transmission modelling to track antimicrobial resistance across care settings in Liverpool

We are looking to recruit a PhD student with a strong background in statistics or mathematics to this fully funded 3 year PhD studentship to investigate transmission of drug resistant bacteria across health and social care settings in Liverpool. Read more

Rethinking evolution in self-fertilising species

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
A major goal of evolution is to understand how selection acts in the genome. Many species reproduce via self-fertilisation, where individuals produce both male and female gametes that can be used to produce offspring. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Unveiling the environmental and genetic drivers of continuous colour variation in the European sea lemon (Doris pseudoargus)

Animal colouration is fascinating and it plays a vital role in communication, reproduction and defence. Defensive colouration is particularly intriguing, with some species showing extensive colour variation across their range in response to predation. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Genome-wide diversity and demographic history of relict island populations of rodents

Conservation genetics theory predicts that when a few founding individuals colonise a vacant habitat they will experience a reduction in genetic diversity through the effects of genetic drift which can compromise the viability of the population and limit its capacity to adapt to the new environmental conditions.

EASTBIO Machine Learning methods for Experimental Evolution studies

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Evolutionary biologists have long been interested in the question how populations adapt to changing environments. In experimental evolution studies replicate populations are allowed to adapt to novel but controlled laboratory environments. Read more

EASTBIO Chordate ParaHox gene regulation in development and evolution.

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
This PhD aims to discover the regulatory mechanisms operating across the ParaHox gene cluster, which when disrupted are major contributors to diseases such as diabetes and cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. Read more
