Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
(BBSRC DTP) Evolution in silico and in vitro: environmental change, mutation and space
Dr R Garwood, Dr C Knight
31 January 2019
Understanding evolutionary processes requires an interplay between wet-lab experiment and computational simulation . This project will use model systems for both to explore the interplay of evolutionary processes (primarily mutation) and the spatial environment.
