Evolution and engineering of non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (WILKINSON_J22DTP1)

The discovery & development of penicillin sparked ‘The Golden Age of Antibiotics’ which spanned the 1940’s to 1960’s when most major classes of antibiotics were discovered. Read more

Investigating the potential for re-emergence of wheat stem rust in a changing climate (SAUNDERS_J22DTP)

Wheat stem rust is a notoriously damaging disease of wheat and barley and occurs in most wheat growing areas worldwide. Today, in western Europe the stem rust pathogen, Puccinia graminis f. Read more

*Eastbio*: Decoding the genetics of cognitive functions

How did human cognitive abilities evolve? What are the genes involved in cognition? Are different cognitive functions, such as language and mathematical abilities, controlled by the same mechanisms? Answering these questions is very challenging, but unprecedented resources have allowed initial and highly promising discoveries in this field. Read more

EASTBIO Its about time, the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

EASTBIO What makes a leaf: defining the genetic toolkit that underpins leaf development

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
In nature there is a remarkable diversity in organ shape which has captured the imagination of people throughout history. The leaves of plants are one of the most diverse and characteristic organs in nature and are hypothesised to form the basis of all floral organs too. Read more

EASTBIO Predicting the host plant associations of insect herbivores using community-level interaction data.

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ongoing environmental change is increasingly associated with range expansions by many species, and the exposure of native plants (food crops, forestry, native biodiversity) to new suites of natural enemies. Read more

EASTBIO Do circadian rhythms in ion concentrations drive cellular metabolic rhythms?

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
In the living cell, virtually nothing stays the same over the day/night cycle. Endogenous ~24h rhythms are driven by a biological timekeeping system, the circadian clock, that dynamically regulates nearly all biological processes to match Earth's environmental cycle. Read more

EASTBIO Memory for 'warning' patterns: a link to specific neural excitation

Many animals exhibit ‘warning signals’, patterns that include high contrast, spots or stripes and vivid colours. Although this makes them easier to see, the patterns are thought to have evolved to deter predators, who recognise the patterns as being exhibited by animals who are unpalatable or poisonous.

EASTBIO Variation in ageing rates in the wild

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ageing is one of the most variable and complex of biological processes and understanding the drivers of variation in the onset and rate of ageing among individuals is an urgent research priority. Read more

EASTBIO The effects of stressful environments on ageing in burying beetles

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Senescence is associated with a gradual deterioration of health and function in humans, other animals, and plants. Ageing can be environmentally plastic, and various evolutionary and physiological arguments have been made to suggest that environments that are more harsh should cause faster rates of ageing.
