Regulatory genomics of multicellular processes

  Research Group: Computational Regulatory Genomics
Regulation of gene expression is central to every aspect of biology - from the subcellular level, via the regulation of cell cycle, to the development of body plans and organ systems in multicellular organisms. Read more

Antimicrobial resistant bacteria and their genes in dairy farm environments

Do you want to improve stewardship of antibiotics in animal agriculture?. Do you want to gain an understanding of the ‘wicked problem’ of antimicrobial resistance?. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Bet-hedging plants: Resilience of plant populations to fluctuating temperatures under climate change

This project is ideal for (i) a student with a biology or ecology background with some programming experience and an interest in modelling or (ii) a student with a maths, physics or computer science background who is interested in learning how to perform plant biology experiments. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Genetic consequences of climate change-induced range shifts in Aricia butterflies

The evolutionary consequences of climate change are poorly understood, despite the ubiquity of climate change. In particular, historic geographic separations between related species have broken down in a number of instances as species shift their distributions, potentially resulting in hybridisation. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: The evolution of chemical defences in plants

Plants have evolved an arsenal of chemical compounds with which to interact with the environment. These taxonomically restricted specialised metabolites contribute towards adaptive evolution, and the pathways and genes vary across taxa and within species and populations. Read more

Deciphering host microbe interactions in inflammatory bowel disease

CLINICAL OPTION. Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are chronic and debilitating conditions affecting over 5M people worldwide. They arise due a breakdown in the dialogue between the immune system and the intestinal microbiome, leading to aberrant inflammation. Read more

Exploit the impact of disease-causing HLA variants on cellular phenotypes

The 4 Mb major histocompatibility (MHC) region on chromosome region 6p21.3, which contains the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex, plays a vital role in our immune system and is of great importance to many areas of medicine, from organ transplantation and disease diagnosis to cancer immunotherapy. Read more

Pharmacophylogenomics: Developing phylogenies as predictive tools in drug discovery

The Project. Drug targets are proteins encoded in our genomes that can interact with drugs, triggering physiological responses. The pairing of targets and their targeting drugs is at the core of drug discovery and is accomplished with a combination of bioinformatics and biochemical approaches. Read more

Molecular regulation of neutrophil development in inflammation

Neutrophils are important effector cells of the innate immune system and are produced in large numbers in the bone marrow (BM) through stepwise differentiation of myeloid progenitors, featuring distinct morphological changes and stage-specific expression pattern of surface receptors (1). Read more
