Biology (School of)
The School promotes an interdisciplinary approach to both applied and fundamental research problems and to postgraduate training. Research in the School is organised into three major interdisciplinary centres: the Scottish Oceans Institute (SOI), Biomedical Sciences Research Complex (BSRC) and Centre for Biological Diversity (CBD). Together these centres encompass the full spectrum of research in biological sciences, spanning investigations on the properties and behaviour of individual molecules to planetary environmental dynamics.

A dual function for 4-methoxybenzaldehyde in Petasites fragrans? : Pollinator-attractant and ant-repellent (2017-04-18) - Journal articleAnt-repellent floral volatiles offer one method through which plants can mediate the detrimental effects of ants on flowers. Although the repellence itself is well-documented, the volatiles involved are less well explored. ...
(2017-03-31) - Journal articleDiving behaviour of short-finned pilot whales is often described by two states; deep foraging and shallow, non-foraging dives. However, this simple classification system ignores much of the variation that occurs during ...
Molecular regionalization of the developing amphioxus neural tube challenges major partitions of the vertebrate brain (2017-04-19) - Journal articleAll vertebrate brains develop following a common Bauplan defined by anteroposterior (AP) and dorsoventral (DV) subdivisions, characterized by largely conserved differential expression of gene markers. However, it is still ...
(2016-10) - Journal articleCrumbs3 (CRB3) is a component of epithelial junctions that has been implicated in apical-basal polarity, apical identity, apical stability, cell adhesion and cell growth. CRB3 undergoes alternative splicing to yield two ...
