Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations. Read more

Evolution of antimicrobial resistance

The increasing prevalence of anti-microbial resistance (AMR) is one of the key health challenges of the 21st centuryThe emergence of AMR is inherently an evolutionary problem. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) The evolution of odorant receptors in the domestication of Aedes mosquitoes: the link to zoonotic disease emergence

Manmade environmental change has triggered adaptation to domestic habitats in several pest species, including mosquitoes. As well as being of fundamental biological interest, the evolutionary process of domestication also results in the transmission of formerly zoonotic diseases of wildlife to livestock and humans.

Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Single-cell measurements of mutation dynamics across bacterial DNA

Genetic mutations are the raw material of evolution, driving evolutionary innovations. Mutation rate is thus a key factor determining how organisms adapt to new environments and whether they survive a severe environmental challenge, such as antibiotic treatment in the case of bacteria. Read more
