  Exploiting Nanopore sequencing for genome sequencing
  Dr M Loose
Applications accepted all year round
We are exploiting the latest generation Nanopore sequencing approaches to sequence large genomes. Nanopore sequencing is low cost, easy to use and can generate read lengths limited only by the ability to generate suitable input material.
  Real time sequencing for assembly of complex genomic regions using selective sequencing
  Dr M Loose
Applications accepted all year round
Sequencing technology has advanced rapidly in the last 15 years. The advent of nanopore sequencing introduces truly portable, hand-held sequencing devices which have now been used in every imaginable location from the deep sea to the international space station.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This PhD project will provide comprehensive training for the successful candidate in potato genetics (diploid and tetraploid) as well as plant-pathogen genomics/co-evolution.
  Combatting Illegal Trade in Animal Products by Rapid On-Site DNA Sequencing
  Prof M A Jobling, Dr J Wetton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Illegal trading in animal products is commonplace, widespread and diverse, ranging from substitution of low-value meat from one species into foodstuffs advertised as containing another (e.g.
  Combating Illegal Trade in Animal Products by Rapid On-Site DNA Sequencing
  Prof M A Jobling, Dr C A May
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Illegal trading in animal products is commonplace, widespread and diverse, ranging from trafficking high-value, CITES-protected, endangered species between countries, fraudulent misidentification of by-catch fish filleted at sea (estimated at ~25%), through to substitution of low-value meat from one species into foodstuffs advertised as containing another (e.g.
  BBSRC EASTBIO PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein, Dr M Bayer
Application Deadline: 10 December 2018
This PhD project will provide comprehensive training for the successful candidate in potato genetics (diploid and tetraploid) as well as plant-pathogen genomics/co-evolution.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Native Mass Spectrometry approaches for Electron and Photon mediated Top Down Sequencing of Biotherapeutics
  Prof P Barran, Dr B Bellina
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In this project we propose to develop electron and photon mediated top-down sequencing methods to analyse recombinant biological therapeutics including monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors.
  Genome and transcriptome sequencing and functional analysis to find new mutation types in patients with inherited blindness
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Human inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) result from mutations in over 200 different genes, many of them first implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou E et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag M et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  Using massively-paralleled sequencing to find the cause of inherited conditions that affect the front of the eye
  Dr M Ali, Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Eye diseases are a common cause of human disability and many of them are inherited. These include congenital as well as adult-onset conditions and diseases of ageing, and may involve abnormalities at the back of the eye or the anterior eye structures.
  Cave exploration: shedding light on organic sulfur cycling in a terrestrial underground chemosynthetic
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Investigate the organic sulfur cycle of a closed cave ecosystem based on chemosynthesis. Apply stable isotope and metagenomics approaches to characterise uncultivated bacteria.
