This project aims to measure the halocarbon production and identify the microalgae producing them in the field during a voyage on the RV Investigator while travelling through the region known as the Maritime Continent.
Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round
Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
