Using single molecule super-resolution microscopy to reveal how bacteria remodel their cell wall

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
BACKGROUND. Bacteria are surrounded by a mesh-like cell wall which protects bacteria from bursting due to their high internal pressure of turgor pressure, like how a thick bicycle tyre supports and reinforces the inflated inner tube. Read more

Understanding bacterial cell wall synthesis and its linkage to cell division for next generation antibiotic drugs

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is now widely understood to be a global healthcare emergency, exacerbated by many socio-economic factors. Read more

BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Beyond the boundaries of plant sex: the role of the cell wall in fertilisation

During fertilisation in plants, key cells undergo remarkable changes which must involve changes in the cell wall; upon pollen tube arrival at the ovule, one of the synergid cells degenerates while the other fuses with the central cell, and subsequently the pollen tube bursts to release the sperm cells for fusion with the egg cell.

EASTBIO Identifying, characterising and engineering plant cell wall degrading enzymes for biofuel production

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
The effects of climate change have never been more apparent, which demands an urgent need for cleaner and greener processes for energy production. Read more

MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Exploring susceptibility of L-form bacteria to antimicrobial peptides

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is considered by the World Health Organization as one of the top 10 global public health threats. L-form switching is a mechanism, which allows bacteria (including important pathogens such as Escherichia coli (E. Read more

EASTBIO Genes controlling formation of a novel water conducting tissue in Marchantia polymorpha

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
We identified a basic helix loop helix transcription factor (called ZOU) which is specifically expressed in the endosperm of seed in flowering plants. Read more

Prokaryotic Cell Division

When archaea and bacteria divide, most form a ring structure that facilitates the separation of mother and daughter cells. The best-known component of the cytokinetic ring is FtsZ, the bacterial tubulin homologue. Read more

MSc by Research: Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied plant metabolic pathways over the past two decades. Read more
