Enhanced variant interpretation for the discovery of mechanisms underpinning Ophthalmic genomic disorders

This project will utilize large genomic sequencing datasets from the 100,000 genomes project and the UK BioBank to understand how genomic variation impacts the development and function of cells vital for correct vision. Read more

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

Detailed assessment of somatic genomic copy number variants (CNVs) in multiple system atrophy (MSA)

MSA is a devastating sporadic neurodegenerative disorder with strong similarities to Parkinson’s disease (PD). Both are synucleinopathies, characterised by inclusions of α-synuclein, which in MSA occur mostly in oligodendrocytes. Read more

Self funded BMS Project: Understanding the population dynamics of haematopoietic stem cells during gene therapy for sickle cell disease

Applications accepted for PhD Only. Background. This project builds on the recent discovery that whole genome sequencing approaches in blood stem and progenitor cells can be used to estimate the number of actively contributing blood stem cells in humans (Lee-Six et al., Nature 2018). Read more

De Novo Mutations and Human Disease

De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most originate, the human testis. Read more
