NERC GW4+ DTP studentship - Bacterial fish pathogens: threats for fisheries and the environment

Freshwater fish are amongst the most highly threatened animals with fish stocks in global decline. Around 95% of the rivers in Wales are now categorised at risk for salmonids, with most salmon stocks in England and Wales in a highly depleted state. Read more

Assessment of pathogen impacts on novel forestry species and provenances in the UK to aid understanding of future commercial potential

Forests in the UK are in a vulnerable position as epidemics of invasive pathogens such as Phytophthora ramorum on larches and Dothistroma septosporum on pines have narrowed the range of commercially viable timber species. Read more

Understanding the molecular mechanisms of plant disease resistance

Plant pathogens pose major challenges both to crop production and to the resilience of natural ecosystems. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture and forestry. Read more

Understanding the Functional Effects of Genetic Variation in the Promoters of Bacterial Pathogens

A vast amount of genome sequence data is available for many bacterial pathogens. Exploitation of these genome sequences for understanding of microbial evolution and the adaptation to host environments is a rapidly growing area of infectious disease research. Read more

 . The School of Biological Sciences, in partnership with Edinburgh Infectious Diseases, is delighted to open applications to the sixth cohort of students on this Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme. Read more

Does the cyto-lethal distending toxin aid environmental transmission of pathogenic bacteria?

Cytolethal distending toxin (CDT) is a genotoxin produced by a number of different bacterial pathogens. Although it is carried by a range of Gram negative bacteria, it is not universal and seems to be limited to specific genetic lineages within a species. Read more
