Macro-evolution in microorganisms: marine-terrestrial transitions as a case-study for adaptive radiations in bacteria

This £522k NERC-funded project seeks to improve our understanding of the ecological and evolutionary drivers of biodiversity in bacteria, which currently greatly lags behind that of animals and plants. Understanding…

Antimicrobial Resistance and Microbiology

Antimicrobial resistance surveillance

Developing an international strategy for the surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in the environment.

Antimicrobial Resistance and Microbiology

Exploring understudied aspects of antimicrobial resistance evolution to improve environmental pollution policy

This project, funded through a NERC Responsive Mode grant and supported by the Environment Agency and Roche, aims to generate the largest publicly available database of the lowest antibiotic concentrations…
