  Multi-disciplinary connectivity investigation of Priority Marine Features in Scottish waters using bio-physical modelling and population genomics
  Dr C S Jones, Dr B Rabe
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are designated for the protection and conservation of a range of species and habitats.
  Environmental DNA (eDNA) monitoring for invasive non-native species to protect marine biodiversity
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney, Dr W G Sanderson, Dr I Matejusova
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
European oyster (Ostrea edulis) beds were once extensive and wide-spread but are now rare and threatened biodiversity hot-spots. They are important nursery and foraging habitats for many fish and invertebrates and also act to stabilise the seabed and prevent coastal erosion.
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  Natural chemicals as anti-aging compounds
  Dr A Kolb
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Aging is a complex, multi-facetted process during which key parameters in an organism change gradually, resulting in an overall functional decline.
  Effects of essential amino acid (EAA) restriction on cognitive function and ageing
  Prof M Delibegovic, Dr B Platt, Dr N Mody
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
The developed world is currently facing a significant increase in average lifespan, with the implication of increased age-related diseases including various cancers, dementia, type 2 diabetes, cataracts and osteoporosis in our aged population.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
