Targeting Staphylococcus aureus copper resistance as a novel antimicrobial strategy in skin infection models

Staphylococcus aureus uses host antimicrobial copper as a regulatory signal to alter gene expression to promote colonisation. The proposed project will target this response to identify new antimicrobials to treat serious S. Read more

Facultative anaerobiosis by mycobacteria: computational systems biology to model bioenergetics

This project seeks to advance the frontiers of bioscience discovery by improving our understanding of the Rules of Life through the lens of systems biology to investigate how thermodynamic constraints can limit bacterial adaptation to challenging environments. Read more

To feast among the starving: facultative anaerobiosis by Mycobacterium avium

This project seeks to advance the frontiers of bioscience discovery by improving our understanding of the Rules of Life through the lens of microbial physiology to investigate metabolic and respiratory adaptation to challenging environments. Read more

Can Mycobacteria help solve the global crisis of phosphorus bioavailability?

Phosphorus is one of the planetary boundaries that determine Earth’s ecosystem stability and safe use of resources (1). Phosphorus is a key element of life required by all living organisms. Read more

Understanding the biology of how a promiscuous vibriophage, pirates host metabolism

BACKGROUND. Bacteriophages are the most abundant biological entity on the planet, with 1031 in the biosphere. Despite a recent resurgence in phage research, we still do not know the function of the majority of phage genes and how they are involved in phage replication. Read more

CRISPR/Cas mediated chromosome engineering in Arabidopsis

CRISPR/Cas has emerged as a flexible tool for genome editing in complex eukaryotes. It has been widely used for targeted mutagenesis and DNA repair as well more sophisticated approaches utilising the specificity of guide RNAs to target Cas9-tagged proteins. Read more

Beyond antibiotics: the development of a phage cocktail to prevent and treat foot rot disease of sheep

Antimicrobial resistance is one of the most serious human and animal health threats. Antibiotics are extensively used across agricultural industries, but significant pressure is being applied by the regulators to reduce antibiotic use, in order to maintain an effective treatment portfolio for humans.
