EASTBIO: Effects of environmental factors on the global distribution of AMR

Antibiotics have been a crucial treatment against infection for the past century. However, the increasing use of antibiotics globally has also resulted in the increasing prevalence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in bacterial pathogens. Read more

Unravelling the global microbiome of crop plants to improve sustainability and food security

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Plants live in close association with complex communities of microbes which together constitute their ‘microbiome’. The microbiome interacts with the plant in numerous ways; some microbes are beneficial and promote plant growth, while others are pathogens which reduce crop yields. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Analysing past biodiversity in North-eastern Scotland using DNA metabarcoding and metagenomics

The main aim of this project is to explore past biodiversity in North-eastern Scotland using metabarcode (e.g., 12S) and metagenomic sequencing of ancient DNA extracted from lake sediments and peat bogs, with special emphasis on the period spanning the 5th to 11th centuries AD (also known as the ‘Dark Ages’).

Antibiotic resistance genes in chalk streams

Project Rationale. Our river systems face multiple threats. Summer 2022’s drought, followed by rain and discharge of sewage from overflows, and the widespread problem of plastic pollution, highlight the challenges that we face in managing our water resources under climate change. Read more

Nutrient bio-accessibility effects on the gut microbiota (WARREN_Q22CTP)

The project will explore the bioaccessibility of prebiotic fibres from natural matrices. Most of the evidence on the efficacy of prebiotics (fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), arabinoxylan-oligosaccharides (AXOS)) has been collated using the extracted and highly refined oligomers.
