Description

Rhoddion i gefnogi ymchwil i sail enetig pigmentiad ymlusgiaid. //Donations to support research into the genetic basis of reptile pigmentation

Rydym yn gweithio ar hyn o bryd i ganfod yr union newidiadau lefel-DNA sy'n sail i ddiffygion pigmentiad a phatrymu mewn nadredd (“morphs”) gan ddefnyddio'r neidr yd (Pantherophis guttatus) fel ein prif fodel. Unwaith bydd gennym ddata peilot a "phrawf cysyniad" ohono, rydym yn bwriadu ymestyn ein hastudiaethau i rywogaethau eraill a gwneud cais am gyllid gan Gynghorau Ymchwil y DU fel y BBSRC a NERC.

Mae eich cefnogaeth yn hanfodol dros y cyfnod cyntaf hwn ac yn y tymor byr i'r tymor canolig bydd yn arwain gobeithio at allu gwneud profion llwyddiannus am fwtadiadau neilltuol mewn nadredd.

 

We’re currently working to identify the exact DNA-level changes that underlie pigmentation and patterning defects in snakes (“morphs”), using the Corn snake (Pantherophis guttatus) as our main model. Once we have some pilot data and proof-of-concept, we aim to extend these studies to other species and to seek funding from UK Research Councils such as BBSRC and NERC. 

Your support is vital in these early stages and in the short- to medium-term will hopefully lead to the ability to test for and detect snakes carrying particular mutations.
