  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
