Polymorphism-aware Species Trees

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
The recent sequencing of genomes of closely related species and of many individuals from the same species enables the study of speciation and the inference of the history of populations. Read more

TOOL CRAFTING IN NEW CALEDONIAN CROWS

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
SUMMARY. New Caledonian crows are renowned for their ability to manufacture complex foraging tools from plant materials. Read more

Tissue-specific bioorthogonal tracing of glycoproteins in Drosophila melanogaster

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 (Imperial College London). Read more

Sex and sperm wars: the behavioural component of infertility

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Why is infertility so common? From both evolutionary and mechanistic perspectives, infertility remains a puzzle. Read more

ParaHox homeobox genes in chordate evo-devo.

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
This project will use a comparative approach to dissect regulatory mechanisms and functions of the chordate ParaHox genes (Gsx, Xlox/Pdx1 and Cdx), analysing regulation of these genes in the invertebrate chordates, amphioxus (Branchiostoma) and the sea squirt (Ciona intestinalis), and a vertebrate (the chicken Gallus gallus).

Using human pluripotent stem cells to model cardiovascular development and enhance regeneration (RANAA_U22SCIEC)

As we age our ability to regenerate tissue reduces significantly. This is particularly true for the human heart, which has virtually no ability to regenerate postnatally or after disease processes such as myocardial infarction (MI), predominately due to poor revasculariation, which prevents repair of damaged myocardium.
