EASTBIO Improving prawn aquaculture for food security and disease biocontrol

Environmental, sustainability and political concerns necessitate a review and reconfiguration of our food production systems, particularly for global commodities like shrimp and prawns. Read more

Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity. 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

Emerging technologies to inform conservation management of pinnipeds

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
Seals alternate between time onshore and time at sea foraging. Therefore, their spatial overlap with human activities can be high compared with most marine species and has led to concerns about impacts on seal populations (Thompson et al. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Mechanisms of cardiac longevity in the world's longest living vertebrate, The Greenland Shark

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.  It was one of the lesser-known species of sharks up until 2016 when its extreme longevity was revealed. Read more

Linking penguins, seals and whales to layers, schools and swarms: using echosounding to explore common themes for predator-prey interaction in the watercolumn.

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
Deep-diving air-breathing predators such as king penguins and elephant seals face an almost daily challenge of finding prey at depth (including krill and fish that may live hundreds of metres deep). Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.

(BBSRC DTP) Genetic part mining and functional characterisation for bioremediation

Biological degradation of Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic and assimilation of the corresponding monomers ethylene glycol and terephthalate (TPA) into central metabolism offer an attractive route for bio-based molecular recycling and bioremediation applications. Read more
