Quantitative Genetics and Evolution of variation in senescence

Project Details


Double degree PhD project (co-supervised by David Richardson)

There is huge variation in the onset and rate of senescence not only within individuals of the same population, but also across traits within the individual itself. Claire’s research aims to understand the factors causing variation in senescence. In particular, she will first study the asynchrony of senescence in phenotypic traits in various groups such as behavioural, reproductive and physiological traits, and then investigate the quantitative genetics and genomics of traits that senesce.
