The African pygmy mouse is one of the smallest members of the rodent superfamily. Widespread in sub-Saharan Africa, and a popular pet worldwide.
Black-footed ferrets are an endangered member of the weasel family, native to the prairies of North America.
Dogs are a domesticated member of the Canine genus. Dogs were domesticated for tasks like hunting and herding, but have become one of our favourite pets due to their unique bond with people.
The European polecat is a mustelid species native to Western Eurasia and sole ancestor to the domesticated ferret.
The northern harrier and hen harrier are two birds of prey in the harrier subfamily. Some scientists consider them distinct species, while others view them as conspecific (same species).
Koalas are a herbivorous marsupial species that live in Eastern and Southern Australia, currently with a conservation status of vulnerable.
The pink pigeon is a species found exclusively in Mauritius which has recovered from near extinction.
At EI, we are identifying useful genes that could be bred into elite rice varieties to help rice resist environmental pressures.
This EI project aims to identify and understand the dynamic relationship between a gut pathogen, Salmonella, and our defence mechanism of autophagy.
The Strawberry has eight different versions of genetic material interacting in a single individual, making it an octoploid genome.
The mainstay of freshwater aquaculture, the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is a cichlid fish, originally from Africa.
Common wheat is a grass grown by farmers for the cereal grain, which is used as the source of flour, breads, livestock feed and alcoholic fermentation.
