Bachelor thesis met labwerk: schimmel kwekende termieten methode
Wil je graag voor je thesis labwerk doen? Dan kan bij ons! Wij werken met schimmels van het genus Termitomyces, schimmels die actief door termieten gecultiveerd worden. Verschillende isolaten van deze schimmel zijn met het blote ...

Fungus growing termites: Sex in somatic tissue
In our group, we study the symbiosis between termites and a fungus. Recently, a research paper came out with surprising findings about this fungus. The researchers argue that at a somatic stage this fungus shows meiosis-like behav ...

Evolutionary properties of mycotoxin production by filamentous fungi: field trips in Zambia and experiments in Wageningen
Filamentous fungi can contaminate maize and nuts, staple foods in Zambia. Contamination is through the production of mycotoxins: highly toxic compounds produced by Aspergilli. In this thesis project, you will travel to Zambia to d ...

The predictability of evolution of an antibiotic resistance gene
Evolution is driven by both chance and necessity, which make its outcome hard to predict. Laboratory evolution experiments with micro-organisms provide a powerful means to study evolution under controlled conditions in replicate p ...

The evolution of niche construction
During evolution, new genotypes may affect the environment in various ways, including the depletion of resources and the excretion of metabolites and toxins. These new conditions may present niches to which later genotypes may ada ...

Role of bacterial interactions in the evolution of antibiotic resistance
Bacterial extracellular products affect not only the fitness of the producer itself, but may also affect the fitness of other cells in the population. We study these social effects using the antibiotic-degrading enzyme TEM-1 beta- ...

Microbial ecology of Zambian fermented products: evolution of microbial communities
Microbial ecology of Zambian fermented products: evolution of microbial communities Analogous to well-known fermented products such as yoghurt, wine, beer and sauerkraut, Zambia has many endogenous fermented products. The ferment ...

Population genetics on the Hoge Veluwe: the occurence of ecotypes in the parastic wasp Nasonia vitripennis
Our research aims at unravelling the genetic and physiological mechanisms underlying life-history traits in parasitoids wasps, insects that develop inside other insects and often kill their host. To understand the evolution of lif ...

Evolution and adaptation of Aspergillus fumigatus in Cystic Fibrosis patients
Cystic fibrosis (CF) patients are confronted with pulmonary infections and frequently A. fumigatus is cultured. CF patients receive for long periods of time antifungal treatment to prevent or cure infections. The fungus A. fumigat ...

Polyploidy: the effects of genome dosage on the plant phenotype.
Polyploidy often occurs in the plant kingdom. Polyploids are plants in which, rather than the usual two copies, a plant has three or more genome copies. Polyploids plants may grow bigger than diploids, and typically have larger fl ...
