Population genomic analysis of the Aotearoa New Zealand Yellowtail kingfish – haku for community-led aquaculture

Project Description. We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student for a project that aims to sequence the kingfish (Seriola lalandi) genome, conduct a population genomic study, and help prepare this species for a community-led Māori aquaculture initiative in Aotearoa New Zealand. Read more

Exploring evolutionary change through genomic sequencing of museum specimens

Next-generation sequencing has made it possible to sequence the genomes of museum specimens dating back several hundred years. In this project you will generate genomic data from museum specimens of birds, principally great tits. Read more

Landscape genomics and local adaptation in livestock species

Most livestock species originated in a few localities, e.g. the Fertile Crescent or the Indus Valley among others. However, today, many of those species have spread to many environments around the planet. Read more

Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment.

The causes of speciation rate variation in nature

The project. Rates of species formation vary dramatically across the tree of life and contribute to profound differences in species richness among clades, regions and through time. Read more
