PhD studentships in evolutionary theory - Royal Holloway, University of London

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Mon, 20/01/2014 - 10:45

The following 2 PhD Projects are on offer at Royal Holloway University of London

Life history and genome architecture

The organization and architecture of the genome has been shaped by natural selection. There is abundant evidence that many genomes contain parts which were acquired from other organisms. Examples are viruses, which have integrated in the genetic material in a cell, and plasmids found in bacteria. The most striking examples are the acquisition of the genomes of organelles such as chromoplasts and mitochondria, which have originated from a fusion of cells.
