EASTBIO: Deciphering the role of translation in temperature-controlled development

Project Description for Find-A-PhD Advert (max 400 words). This will be the text that is advertised to prospective students. Ambient temperature has profound effects on almost all aspects of plant development, from the onset of seed germination and seedling establishment to flower and fruit production. Read more

EASTBIO Colouring the patterns of molecular and phenotypic evolution.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. A paradox lies at the heart of the rules of life that govern organismal form and function. Organisms are built and maintained by networks of genes that interact, moment-to-moment, with each other and with the internal and external environment. Read more

EASTBIO Bacterial selfishness, and how bacterial communities cope with nutrient shortage

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Most antibiotics target rapidly dividing bacteria. However, for the majority of their existence, bacteria grow in conditions where a few or most nutrients are limiting so that very little to no propagation takes place. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Molecular mechanisms of low-density lipoprotein receptor regulation by the protease BMP1

Cholesterol homeostasis in mammals is tightly controlled by its biosynthesis, dietary intake and cellular uptake from the blood. The low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) is responsible for the cellular uptake of cholesterol in the form of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). Read more

(BBSRC DTP) How ageing affects the circadian and mechanical regulation of cells and tissues

The World Health Organisation estimates that by 2050, there will be two billion people aged 60 and above. Despite this remarkable progress in extending human life, health issues specific to the ageing body can severely limit the quality of life and well-being of the elderly. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Mechanisms of cardiac longevity in the world's longest living vertebrate, The Greenland Shark

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.  It was one of the lesser-known species of sharks up until 2016 when its extreme longevity was revealed. Read more

Understanding the function and functional mechanism of mitochondrial AAA proteinases

The mitochondrion is a vitally important organelle of eukaryotic cells. Mitochondrial AAA proteinases play important roles in mitochondrial function and protein homeostasis (proteostasis) by removal of unwanted proteins and regulating the function of mitochondrial proteins. Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.
