EASTBIO Ubiquitin dynamics during host-pathogen interaction

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Protein ubiquitination is a key regulatory process that controls many aspects of eukaryotic life. Both free living and pathogenic organisms employ ubiquitination mediated protein networks to adapt to their environment. Read more

EASTBIO Its about time, the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

EASTBIO Understanding the impact of host sex on viral infection

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Infectious disease dynamics depend strongly on the ability of individuals to control the pathogen and to transmit it to others. Sex is known to have a large impact on pathogen control, but much less is known about the effect of host sex on disease transmission. Read more

EASTBIO Dynamics of mitochondrial genome complexity in trypanosomes

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Human and livestock diseases caused by trypanosomatid parasites threaten health and livelihood of millions of people in Africa, South America and Asia. Read more

EASTBIO Predicting the host plant associations of insect herbivores using community-level interaction data.

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ongoing environmental change is increasingly associated with range expansions by many species, and the exposure of native plants (food crops, forestry, native biodiversity) to new suites of natural enemies. Read more

EASTBIO Are chronic infection stage trypanosomes different to acute stage forms?

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
African trypanosomes are parasites that cause human sleeping sickness and the livestock disease ‘nagana’ in sub Saharan Africa. This causes losses of several billion dollars in agricultural productivity in this region each year. Read more

EASTBIO Determining the role of phosphorylation in chronic Toxoplasma gondii cyst formation

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Toxoplasma gondii is a highly prevalent parasite, infecting 1/3 of the human population and a wide range of animals. The parasite is a master at subverting host cell processes for its own benefit. Read more

EASTBIO Metabolic engineering to produce novel natural products as tools for understanding response to environmental changes.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Fatty acids and lipids are important factors in human health though our diets, and are essential for cellular homeostasis (membranes) and protein regulation (S-acylation, N-myristoylation, GPI anchors) in all eukaryotes. Read more
