Evolution, Genes & Genomics Group (EG^3) Research
The Evolution, Genes & Genomics Group (EG^3) comprises staff, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students in the School of Biology at the University of St Andrews who conduct research in this area. Our research focuses on a wide range of topics in evolution, molecular genetics and physiology. We have strong research links with other universities, research institutes and laboratories in the British Isles and abroad. We offer first class research facilities, in well-equipped laboratories, set in wonderful surroundings.

Rapidly evolving genes and stress adaptation of two desert poplars, Populus euphratica and P. pruinosa (2013-06-11) - Journal articleUnderstanding which genes have evolved rapidly with the recent tree speciation in arid habitats can provide valuable insights into different adaptation mechanisms. We employed a comparative evolutionary analysis of expressed ...
Models incorporating chromatin modification data identify functionally important p53 binding sites (2013-06) - Journal articleGenome-wide prediction of transcription factor binding sites is notoriously difficult. We have developed and applied a logistic regression approach for prediction of binding sites for the p53 transcription factor that ...
(2008-01-30) - Journal articleBackground. Gene families typically evolve by gene duplication followed by the adoption of new or altered gene functions. A different way to evolve new but related functions is alternative splicing of existing exons of a ...
