Life at the limits – algal physiology under extreme conditions

Summary. This project will characterise the limits of life in cryophilic algae by studying how the growth, physiology and metabolic traits are altered in low pressure and low temperature environmental chambers. Read more

Understanding the role of nitrogen speciation in controlling the biodiversity of freshwater algal communities

The project. Freshwater ecosystems and the biodiversity they contain are among the most threatened ecosystems globally. Nutrient pollution via excessive inputs of nitrogen and phosphorus is perhaps the most significant pressure acting on these ecosystems. Read more

Taking aim: Substrate Specificity in the Sulfotransferases

This studentship will build on papers from both supervisors over the past 3 years, combining structural biology, comparative genomics and synthetic chemistry to investigate the substrate specificity of carbohydrate sulfotransferases. Read more

Building a pyrenoid-based CO2-concentrating mechanism in higher plants

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Photosynthesis is one of the key engineering targets for synthetic biologists to enhance the yield potential of globally important crops. Read more

EASTBIO Do circadian rhythms in ion concentrations drive cellular metabolic rhythms?

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
In the living cell, virtually nothing stays the same over the day/night cycle. Endogenous ~24h rhythms are driven by a biological timekeeping system, the circadian clock, that dynamically regulates nearly all biological processes to match Earth's environmental cycle. Read more
