Honours project: Morphological project quantifying skin pigment differences between tiger snake populations (striped vs. completely black) and in response to UV exposure over a season.
Evolution of tiger snake skulls in response to prey type and size between island and mainland populations
Honours project: Morphological project examining evolution of tiger snake skull shape in response to different prey type/size between island and mainland populations.
Honours project: Bioinformatics project investigating adaptation of venom in island populations of tiger snake using venom gland transcriptome data.
Honours project: Bioinformatics project identifying potential functional genes involved in tiger snake body size gigantism/dwarfism using whole genome data.
Honours project: This bioinformatics project investigates the population-level epigenetic differences of tiger snakes involved in adaptation to island environments.
Honours project: Undertake a comparative analysis of whole genome sequences for terrestrial and marine snakes.
