The evolution of mating systems and parental care: phylogenetic analyses

Mating systems and parental care are some of the most variable social traits. The project uses vertebrate diversity to understand the evolution of breeding system variation in fishes, amphibians, reptiles birds and mammals. Read more

Novel AI methods for zoonotic disease prevention and prediction - Host association studies of Salmonella Typhimurium using Machine Learning

In this PhD project you will join a Government-Academia collaborative project to develop novel computational approaches to detect and predict a type of infectious diseases termed zoonotic disease that can be transmitted between species, from animals to humans (and vice-versa). . Read more

Testing the accuracy of evolutionary inferences from morphological phylogeny

  Research Group: Interdisciplinary Centre for Ancient Life
Phylogenetic data are fundamental for understanding evolution. Building and analysing trees from genotypic and phenotypic data is necessary to reconstruct evolutionary relationships, diversifications, rates, and dynamics. Read more

Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use

Project Overview. This project uses phylogenetic comparative methods to characterise medicinal plant use. You will use published data to identify the ethnobotanical uses of selected species, and the extent to which they are characterised in terms of phytochemistry and pharmacology. Read more

iCASE ‘MRC23IIAREx Developing novel microfluidic platforms for antibiotic discovery

Project Summary. Antimicrobial resistance is one of the most pressing public health challenges and threatens the ability to effectively fight infectious diseases, with around 10 million people predicted to die annually of infections by 2050. Read more

Pathogen surveillance from wastewater using real-time nanopore sequencing

Genomic surveillance from wastewater was used successfully during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic to inform public health measures by monitoring case numbers and the emergence of new variants. Read more

The neurobiological bases of the Cambrian explosion.

Project Highlights. ·        Nervous system. ·        Phylogeny. ·        Metazoa. ·        Monoamines. Overview. While it is well established that the Cambrian explosion required a radical change in animal behaviour (e.g. Read more

Effects of forest diversity on aquatic-terrestrial linkages and processes

Tree species, functional and genetic diversity is known to mediate ecosystem processes and functioning of the forest ecosystems. However, forest ecosystems are connected to other ecosystems through the flow of species, energy and elements. Read more

Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis

The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology. Read more

Antimicrobial resistance dynamics and antimicrobial use in wildlife rehabilitation facilities in the United Kingdom

Supervisors. Dr Fernando Sanchez-Vizcaino Buendia (primary supervisor), Dr Irene Bueno. Background. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the greatest global public health threats of the 21st century (Prestinaci et al. Read more
