Showing 1 to 10 of 10
  Developing CRISPR genome engineering tools to understand nitrogen cycling by novel archaea (LEHTOVIRTA-MORLEYUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Lehtovirta-Morley, Prof M Hutchings, Prof C Murrell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Nitrification is a central step in the global nitrogen cycle and a key driver of environmental change through its role in greenhouse gas emission and eutrophication.
  Evolution in action: using museum DNA to understand disease resistance in island birds (RICHARDSONUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with IPNA-CSIC]
  Prof D S Richardson, Dr L Spurgin, Dr B Emerson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Many natural populations are facing a “double threat” of reduced genetic diversity and new pathogen challenges. Therefore, understanding how hosts adapt to pathogens in small and fragmented populations has important ramifications for conservation, epidemiology and evolution.
  The long arm of parents: non-genetic effects on fitness, population viability and adaptive evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Dr S Immler, Prof T Chapman
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Recent discoveries showed that parental environment affects offspring performance for many generations.
  Transcriptional and environmental control of bacterial nitrous oxide emissions (ROWLEYUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr G Rowley, Dr J Todd, Prof L Baggs
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas. Although atmospheric N2O levels are lower than that of CO2, it has a 300-fold greater global warming potential, and represents around 10% of total global greenhouse gas emissions.
  Using Reverse Metagenomics to characterise nematode communities and soil health (YUUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof D W Yu, Prof M Hutchings
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Free-living nematodes are present in huge numbers in the soil. A few species are estimated to cause tens of billions ($USD) of damage to crops globally each year.
  Who are the important environmental producers and cyclers of DMSP? (TODDUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr J Todd, Dr R Airs, Dr F Hopkins, Dr S Moxon
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Introduction. Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is one of Earth’s most abundant organosulfur molecules. It is an anti-stress compound that is produced by marine phytoplankton and many marine bacteria.
  Spanning the cognitive gulf between the microscopic and symbolic representation of chemistry through immersive virtual reality (LANCASTERSU19SF)
  Prof S J Lancaster, Dr S Ashworth
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The visualisation of three dimensional structures of molecules and the fluent translation between two dimensional representations and reality have long been recognised as challenges for the chemistry student.
  Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in aquatic environments: exploring an untapped source of genetic information (MOCKUENV19ARIES)
  Prof T Mock, Prof C Van Oosterhout, Prof V Moulton
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
DNA outside of cells may account for the largest fraction of total DNA in many environments such as the oceans and their sediments.
  Exploiting a new therapeutic target in malignant melanoma (MORRISCU19SF)
  Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
BACKGROUND. Despite recent advancements in treatment, cutaneous melanoma still remains a deadly disease once it has metastasised.
  Synthesis of new DNA binding to compounds target genetic diseases such as cancer and diabetes (WALLERZU19SF)
  Dr Z Waller, Prof M Searcey
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Synthesis of new DNA binding compounds to target genetic diseases such as cancer and diabetes. It is often assumed that DNA exists only as the iconic Watson-Crick double helix but it can actually adopt many different types of structure depending on the sequence and environmental conditions.
