The MRes in Bioinformatics involves the use of computational methods to study molecular evolution using sequence data now available in online databases.

Research areas within which projects are available include: the use of secondary structure models to investigate evolutionary relationships in the molluscs; evolution of mobile DNAs; studies on the evolution of spider silk gene families; codon usage in yeast; recombination in AIDS viruses; the application of molecular clocks to microbial sequences, in particular the investigation of rate variation in foraminifera lineages and the estimation of the age of viral radiations.
