Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations. Read more

Control of antibiotic production through synthetic biology of bacterial hormone signalling

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics due to an increase in antibiotic resistance. To produce these essential drugs efficiently in biotechnological systems, we need to have a better understanding of the regulatory mechanisms of antibiotic production. Read more

Interfacing Electronics and Synthetic Biology

There is huge potential for growth in the cross-over between bioelectronics and synthetic biology. We aim to develop an interface that allows information transfer between the two domains. Read more

A synthetic biology approach to dissect the post-anaphase functions of mitotic kinases

Cell division is essential for life. The complex mechanochemical processes of chromosome segregation and cytokinesis are coordinated by the group of multifunctional protein kinases (mitotic kinases) such as Aurora kinases and Polo kinases under the master regulation of the cyclin-dependent kinases.

Microbial synthesis of hydroquinone from waste feedstocks

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Hydroquinone (HQ) is an essential raw material for the high value thermoplastic polymer PEEK, produced by Victrex on >7000 tonnes pa scale and consuming 1500 tones HQ each year, with figures forecast to double by 2030. Read more

Microalgal Biorefineries

A major contemporary challenge in industrial manufacturing is the development of sustainable production processes. This includes reduced resource consumption and CO2 generation, and energy efficient operations with maximised product outputs. Read more

Embedded bacterial 3D printing for synthetic biomaterial screening and production

Synthetic biology and chemistry are new approaches to engineer new biomaterials with customizable functional properties. An area of active research using such approaches is to engineer bacterial cellulose, a class of biomaterial that has broad applications in food, paper production and biomedical industries. Read more
