EASTBIO: Genetic drivers of gene expression in chicken

Decoding the molecular function of chicken genomes and their variation across animals is fundamental to understand the cellular mechanisms underpinning economically important traits, and to improve and tailor genomic prediction within and across populations. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP – Large scale recoding of RNA viruses for live attenuated vaccine development

  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
Additional supervisor. Dr Edward Hutchison [University of Glasgow]. Background. Influenza A virus (IAV) is a globally distributed zoonotic pathogen that in humans causes seasonal winter epidemics as well as frequent pandemics. Read more

Trees to mitigate the climate change impacts of poultry (OP2225)

Since 70% of UK land and 37% globally is used for agriculture, climate change action must include agriculture. However, agriculture is one of the most difficult sectors to abate, and under some estimates could represent half UK emissions by 2050. Read more

Synthetic Biology of Methane Oxidising Bacteria for the Production of High-quality Feed Protein

Healthy poultry require high quality sources of protein and carbohydrates. Modern feeds for poultry consists largely of grain and protein sources such as soybean, which can be in direct competition with human food consumption. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Dynamics of neurogenesis during spinal cord regeneration

About 1200 people a year are left paralysed in the UK due to a Spinal Cord Injury (or SCI). This is because injuries involving the central nervous system (CNS) have poor capacity to repair or regenerate, thus resulting in a permanent loss of function. Read more

Development and evaluation of lateral-flow test for rapid detection of Mycoplasma gallisepticum and Mycoplasma synoviae in poultry clinical samples

Background. Protecting the health of poultry is fundamental in ensuring their welfare, health and production. Often, early diagnosis provides opportunities for early intention to safeguard the health of poultry flocks and avoid production losses. Read more

Cell-to-cell spread of Marek's Disease Virus

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

EASTBIO: How cells build the intestine

Organs generate their own shapes during embryonic development through the production and precise placement of cells. The intestine, uniquely, takes the shape of a long tube, crucial for nutrient absorption by ensuring that a high surface area is attained before birth. Read more
