  Streptomyces venezuelae a next-generation cell-factory for synthetic biology
  Dr S Moore
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Streptomyces venezuelae a next-generation cell-factory for synthetic biology. Synthetic biology is beginning to explore new cell-factories for opportunities including biofuels and drugs.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optogenetics for integrated, continuous processes for large-scale chemicals manufacture:Next generation manufacturing through synthetic biology.
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr S Hay, Prof E Takano
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD project will exploit new ways of working by providing training in a variety of approaches relevant to the Bioenergy and Industrial Biotechnology theme.
  Using synthetic biology to develop natural sunscreen compounds from algae
  Prof M X Caddick
Applications accepted all year round
The project will employ synthetic biology to investigate, manipulate and optimise production of Mycosporine-like Amino Acids (MAAs).
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) A synthetic biology approach to develop bacterial protein expression tools
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Streptomyces and related bacteria possess diverse biosynthetic pathways that produce a wide array of bioactive natural compounds including antibiotics, anti-cancer agents and other therapeutically important molecules.
  3D Genomics for a better synthetic biology and gene therapy.
  Dr A Noy, Prof M Leake
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
While genome sequencing has led to significant increases in the amount of genetic information available, we are still far from a comprehensive understanding of how genomes work.
  (BBSRC DTP) Novel antimicrobial discovery using high-throughput pathway assembly and robotics
  Prof E Takano, Prof A Munro, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This is an interdisciplinary research project in Industrial Biotechnology, especially in the emerging area of Synthetic Biology applied to antimicrobial resistance.
  Designing of novel biosensors using synthetic biology approaches
  Dr S Heeb
Applications accepted all year round
Infectious diseases are still a major cause of death, disability and social and economic upheaval accounting for more than 11.9 million deaths a year worldwide.
  Engineering Cupriavidus Necator H16 to Convert CO2/Waste Stream into Useful Chemicals Using a Synthetic Biology Approach
  Dr TS Wong, Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
This project falls under the umbrella of carbon capture and utilization (CCU), i.e., to turn a greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful feedstock for chemical syntheses.
  (A*STAR) Awakening natural product biosynthetic gene clusters for novel compound discovery using systems and synthetic biology
  Prof E Takano, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Recent advances in molecular biology, in particular our improved ability to read and (most importantly) write genomic sequences, have led to renewed excitement in the area of genetic engineering.
