Nutrient transport in insect-microbe symbiosis

All animals exist in symbiosis with a complex microbiome. The most intriguing, and intimate, form of symbiosis is endosymbiosis, where one partner, the microbe, exists inside cells of the other partner, the animal host. Read more

PhD Studentship in Biology: Nutrient Transport Mechanisms in Symbiosis

Overview. Many animals rely on microbes to fulfil essential biological functions including the supply of essential nutrients. However, the molecular mechanisms which enable the interactions between animals and their symbiotic microbiome are not yet well understood. Read more

EASTBIO Bacterial selfishness, and how bacterial communities cope with nutrient shortage

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Most antibiotics target rapidly dividing bacteria. However, for the majority of their existence, bacteria grow in conditions where a few or most nutrients are limiting so that very little to no propagation takes place. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Nutrient - Mediated Bacterial Delivery of "Dual Warhead" Antimicrobials

Microbial resistance to antibiotics has been a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market. 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

Metabolic and physiological profiling using hyperspectral reflectance for quality traits under stress

Vertical farming approaches seek to improve the efficient use of resources to increase production of high-value crops, whilst at the same time imbedding food production efficiently in the supply chain to avoid waste, reduce transport costs (and emissions) and increase sustainability. Read more

Iron Homeostasis In Bacterial Plant Colonization And Disease

Background. Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via specific transport mechanisms. Read more

Stream synchrony: understanding the synchrony of nutrients, pollution, and water in river ecosystems

Rivers convey and transform the water, nutrients and pollutants they receive from the landscape. High concentrations of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus may act as pollutants, damaging freshwater and estuary ecosystems through processes such as eutrophication. Read more
