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

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

The Mechanisms of Epigenetic Regulation in Ageing and Age-Related Neurodegeneration

We are seeking a bright, talented, and highly motivated PhD student to lead a project investigating basic mechanisms of epigenetic regulation and their involvement in ageing and age-related neurodegeneration. 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

Building the skull - normal and abnormal development

Using a combination of patient samples and mouse models, we study the causes and developmental origins of skull malformation. The work ranges from screening human DNA for new mutations, to use of genome editing and single cell transcriptomics to model the developmental causes of these malformations in mice. 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
