Immune system diversity and evolution in natural populations

You will investigate how immune systems evolve. Immune systems are highly sophisticated networks encoded by hundreds of genes. They show a lot of variation both between individuals and between species, and this variability has consequences for how organisms are able to resist infection in the wild. Read more

Defence evolution under protective symbiosis: how do nuclear and symbiont defences interact?

Animals live in symbiosis with microbes. The presence of symbionts modifies the biology of the host in fundamental ways. In insects and other arthropods, symbionts have become part of the genetic inheritance – passed from a female to her progeny in or on eggs. Read more

How does the environment impact female control of fertilisation?

In internally-fertilising animals, the female reproductive tract is the arena in which sperm compete to fertilise eggs. This provides females with enormous potential to control fertilisation after mating, and a female’s anatomy, physiology and behaviour can all work together to select some sperm over others.

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.
