Examples of recent BBS Dissertation titles for Genetics 'Majors'

Examples of BBS dissertation titles 2017/8

  • How has Big Data in genomics defined cancer diagnosis and treatment?
  • Can the bacterial symbiont Wolbachia eliminate Dengue Fever?
  • Why are bacterial persisters important and how far do we understand their mecahnisms of formation?
  • Can we assign a function to 80% of the human genome?

Examples of BBS dissertation titles 2016/7

  • Discuss the molecular mechanisms underpinning bacterial persistence in the face of antibiotic treatment. What problems does this provide for clinical management and what possible solutions have been explored?
  • How can genome sequence data be used to understand influenza evolution?
  • Human (especially female) meiosis is extraordinarily error-prone. What progress has been made in understanding the molecular basis for this genetic problem?
  • Identification of functional variants in cancer genomes
  • What has experimental evolution taught us about how new species develop?
  • Innate immunity pathways in invertebrates
  • What are common fragile sites, and do they have any biological significance?
  • Dosage compensation of genes on the mammalian X chromosome: why and how?
  • What does the assembly of embryonic stem cells into tissues and organs in culture say about the development of an organism?
  • Control of transposable elements in vertebrates
  • Complex architecture of ciliate genomes
  • Does our modern understanding of epigenetics challenge the tenets of neo-Darwinism?
