Conservation genomics of manta and devil rays

Project Background. Manta and devil rays (collectively mobulids) are charismatic and ecologically important marine megafauna with high ecotourism value (O’Malley et al., 2013; Stewart et al., 2018). Read more

Determine the potential for purifying and positive selection at the haploid stage (IMMLERS_U21ERC2)

Assessing the effect of purifying and positive selection in genes expressed during the haploid stage, the diploid stage or both allows for a direct quantification and comparison of the relative importance of haploid and diploid selection. Read more

WR DTP fully-funded project: Conservation of light-dependent immunity pathways in greenhouse crops

This project is ideal for either (i) a student with a biology background with some programming experience and an interest in modelling or (ii) a student with a maths, physics or computer science background who is interested in learning how to perform plant biology experiments. Read more

Measuring and modelling natural selection in hybrid zones

Situations where there is hybridisation between two different species provide fascinating test cases of the adaptive value of traits that differ among taxa (Barton and Hewitt, 1989). Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Genetic consequences of climate change-induced range shifts in Aricia butterflies

Lead Supervisor: Prof Chris Thomas (University of York Department of Biology). Co-supervisor:  Dr Kanchon Dasmahapatra (University of York Department of Biology), Dr David Roy (CEH) Dr Rachel Pateman (University of York Department of Environment and Geography). Read more

Conservation genomics of bumble bees

Project Highlights. Your research will be high impact science geared towards the conservation of bumble bees - highly important pollinators of both wild flowers and important crops. Read more

Regulatory genomics of multicellular processes

  Research Group: Computational Regulatory Genomics
Regulation of gene expression is central to every aspect of biology - from the subcellular level, via the regulation of cell cycle, to the development of body plans and organ systems in multicellular organisms. Read more

EASTBIO What makes a leaf: defining the genetic toolkit that underpins leaf development

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
In nature there is a remarkable diversity in organ shape which has captured the imagination of people throughout history. The leaves of plants are one of the most diverse and characteristic organs in nature and are hypothesised to form the basis of all floral organs too. Read more
