Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round
Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
