University of Nottingham
Within the School of Biology, research in molecular genetics is concentrated in the human genetics, fungal biology, and developmental genetics and gene control groups. In the human genetics group, research includes: studies of the molecular basis of myotonic dystrophy and the identification of genes involved in cardiac development; the molecular genetics of muscle disease; mouse models of muscle disorders and molecular genetic approaches to anthropology and human population genetics. In the Fungal Biology group, there are studies on the molecular events that determine stress responses during polarised growth, protein folding and secretion in yeasts and filamentous fungi; the molecular and cellular effects of stress on yeast cells and the genetic mechanisms that control sex in fungi. The developmental genetics and gene control group focuses on the mechanisms of eukaryotic gene expression and the genetics of vertebrate embryonic development. Developmental studies are focused largely upon the mechanisms that control stem cell fate; projects on the control of gene expression address the machinery used by cells to achieve appropriate levels of functional transcripts; these studies include control of transcription and the mechanisms of RNA maturation.
