EASTBIO Machine Learning methods for Experimental Evolution studies

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Evolutionary biologists have long been interested in the question how populations adapt to changing environments. In experimental evolution studies replicate populations are allowed to adapt to novel but controlled laboratory environments. Read more

EASTBIO Colouring the patterns of molecular and phenotypic evolution.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. A paradox lies at the heart of the rules of life that govern organismal form and function. Organisms are built and maintained by networks of genes that interact, moment-to-moment, with each other and with the internal and external environment. Read more

EASTBIO Do fish cooperate to inspect predators?

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Cooperation is a fundamental process of life, ranging from bacterial interactions to human nations. Cooperation can take various forms, including foraging, reproduction and defence. Read more

EASTBIO How does the reproductive mode and population history affect the fitness of an introduced plant species?

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Species that uniparentially reproduce to some degree (either through self-fertilisation or clonal reproduction) are more likely to establish themselves in remote areas, including islands. Read more

EASTBIO On the origin of environmental RNA interference: multicopy gene families silenced in nematodes

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
RNA molecules can be secreted by cells into their environment, move between cells, and even between different organisms, potentially encoding “messages” that can be understood by the receiver. Read more

EASTBIO Investigating the effects of plasmid-borne mutagenic DNA polymerases on the evolution of antibiotic resistance.

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Antibiotics from the b-lactam family have been a cornerstone of both human and animal medicine but with increasing bacterial resistance to many first and second-line drugs, clinicians are forced to use b-lactams of ‘last resort’, such as carbapenems. Read more

EASTBIO Seeing double: how do dsRNA binding pseudoenzymes regulate vertebrate mRNAs?

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Pre-mRNAs and mRNAs are regulated post-transcriptionally by a variety of different mechanisms that include splicing and editing, which alter the information content of the RNAs. Read more

EASTBIO Growing on the edge: The genomic basis of coastal adaptation in eyebrights (Euphrasia)

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Local adaptation enables plant populations to survive in extremely harsh environments. Coastal habitats present a suite of challenging conditions with plants exposed to drying oceanic salt spray and osmotically stressful high salinity soils. Read more

A cellular understanding and mathematical modelling of forebrain evolution

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (King’s College London). Read more
