Showing 1 to 10 of 44
  (BBSRC DTP) Comparative Genomics of odorant genes in Anopheles mosquitoes
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Walton, Prof S Lovell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As humans have increased in number and spread around the globe they provide novel and potentially rich sources of food for a variety of pests and pathogens, including mosquitoes.
  (BBSRC DTP) Evolution in silico and in vitro: environmental change, mutation and space
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr R Garwood, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Understanding evolutionary processes requires an interplay between wet-lab experiment and computational simulation [1]. This project will use model systems for both to explore the interplay of evolutionary processes (primarily mutation) and the spatial environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) Evolution of discrete and continuous morphological characters
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr R Sansom, Dr R Garwood, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Advances in the acquisition and analysis of genetic sequence data have led to an increasing emphasis and reliance on molecular data to build phylogenies and test models of evolution, yet phenotypic evidence (morphology) remains vital.
  (BBSRC DTP) Grazer-induced modifications of plant-soil microbiome associations and their influence on grassland community dynamics and functioning
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A major challenge facing grassland farmers is the need to maintain, or bolster, essential soil functions that underpin forage production and quality.
  (BBSRC DTP) Manipulating plant genetic diversity to improve resilience in grasslands
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson, Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
For years the agricultural sector has pursued cultivation of crops with identical genetic properties so that variation in the resulting phenotype is as small as possible.
  (BBSRC DTP) Mechanisms of mutation rate plasticity
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Knight, Dr R Krašovec, Dr P Paszek
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The chance that an organism mutates, for instance that a microbe mutates to resist an antibiotic, can depend on that organism’s environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) Multi-omics Approach to Monitoring Marine Bycatch
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr M Buckley, Dr H Shiels, Dr C Walton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The sustainability of fish within Europe is becoming an increasing concern, with overfishing creating a depletion of fish stocks below maintainable limits.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optimising metabolism in response to the environment for biofuel and high-value chemical production in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson, Dr J Pittman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a widely used model algal species which has enormous potential for biotechnological applications both as a platform strain, and as a model to direct more efficient use of commercially relevant strains.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using mathematical models to understand the role of the respiratory microbiome in asthma
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr T Gilman, Dr M Muldoon, Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Most of the cells in the human body are not human. There are rich microbial communities (i.e., microbiota) in our digestive tracts, our respiratory tracts, and on our skin.
  (MERI) Air quality: New tools for investigating pollution
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr J Allan, Prof H Coe, Prof G McFiggans, Dr D Topping
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Air quality continues to be a major issue facing both developed and developing countries, with outdoor pollution estimated to annually cause around 3 million premature deaths worldwide.
