EASTBIO CRISPR-mediated precision gene editing in algae

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
The CRISPR technology has recently emerged as a revolutionary tool for gene and genome editing in eukaryotes. It opened new avenues to study gene function and modulate gene expression and has a great potential to improve crops including algae1. Read more

Experimental approaches to the evolution of anisogamy in a single celled alga

  Research Group: Centre for Evolutionary Biology
We are looking for a talented student to conduct their PhD on the evolutionary biology of anisogamy. Anisogamy is the difference in size between male and female gametes and is the driver of sexual selection and the evolution of the sexes. Read more

EASTBIO Do circadian rhythms in ion concentrations drive cellular metabolic rhythms?

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
In the living cell, virtually nothing stays the same over the day/night cycle. Endogenous ~24h rhythms are driven by a biological timekeeping system, the circadian clock, that dynamically regulates nearly all biological processes to match Earth's environmental cycle. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Defining the roles of mRNA methylation in circadian physiology and inflammation

Methylation is a pervasive biochemical modification targeting virtually all types of molecules in our cells. A key metabolic pathway called the “methyl cycle” synthesises S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), the methyl donor co-substrate used by over 200 substrate-specific methyltransferases described so far in humans.

(BBSRC DTP) Optimisation of protein production from microalgae

Algae are considered as an attractive feedstock for industrial biotechnology that can be cultivated on non-arable land, require minimal inputs (CO2, light, some nutrients), and can be grown on conditions that do not compete with freshwater such as salt water or wastewater. Read more
