Showing 1 to 10 of 11
  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.
  The evolutionary ecology of dispersal in invading populations (SPURGINUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This exciting studentship addresses a fundamental scientific question. how do genes and the environment influence patterns of dispersal within and among populations? Answering this question is essential if we are to manage invasive species and crop pests.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  The sperm factor: understanding selection at the gametic level for adaptation to changing environments (IMMLERUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr S Immler, Dr L Spurgin, Dr Iain Macaulay
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
A rapid response to changes in the environment is key to the successful survival of a population or species in the currently changing climate.
  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.
  The ageing bee: how does sociality affect ageing in social organisms? (BOURKEUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof A Bourke, Dr A Maklakov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Explaining patterns of ageing in organisms is essential for both our scientific understanding of the diversity of life histories and our ability to manipulate them in beneficial ways.
  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.
  Targeting the P2X7 purinergic receptor in melanoma (STOKESLU19SF)
  Dr L Stokes, Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
There is much research into trying to regain control of cell proliferation or cell death (apoptosis) in cancer. Different strategies exist to do this and a multitude of individual receptor targets are being identified in tumour cell lines and primary cells.
