PhD Studentship: Comprehensive analysis of the transcriptome during Marek's disease virus infection

Marek’s disease (MD) is a lymphoproliferative disease of chickens with a complex pathogenesis, characterized by oncogenic transformation of T cells that infiltrate lymphoid tissues, peripheral nerves and visceral organs. MD is one of the major diseases affecting poultry health and welfare worldwide with a global annual estimated loss close to $2 billion to the poultry industry. Data has been generated on the genome-wide binding of Meq (the major MDV oncogene), methylation patterns during transformation, and differences in gene expression between active and latent viruses (manuscripts in preparation), and  extensive investigations have been carried out into the molecular mechanisms of Meq-induced oncogenesis.

This project is eligible for a University of Edinburgh 3.5 year PhD studentship. Candidates should have or expect to have a minimum of an appropriate upper 2nd class degree. To qualify for full funding students must be UK or EU citizens who have been resident in the UK for 3 years prior to commencement.
