The central dogma of molecular biology states that genetically encoded information flows from DNA to mRNA to protein. The flow from DNA to mRNA occurs through a process called transcription and the flow from mRNA to protein through a process called translation.
The vision of the CEPS CDT is to create a new generation of researchers who are able to carry out world-leading research in circuits and systems which incorporate electronic, photonic and wireless components, thus providing future leaders in the creation of the connected electronic and photonic systems upon which society will depend.
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT), at the University of Cambridge, is looking for aspirational, enthusiastic and open-minded students to join its vibrant environment.
Background. Driven by European Regulations (No. 443/2009) and the USA Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard, automotive and aerospace companies are increasingly looking to use carbon fibre composites to achieve up to 50% weight savings over metallic alternatives.
Background. To ensure safety of any engineering system so that human life is protected and the environment is safe it is logical to be able to define when it is operating outside of its design condition.
Over the course of a long evolutionary history vector-borne pathogens have developed mechanisms to successfully disrupt natural defences in both their mammalian hosts and insect vectors in order to survive and establish infection.
