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

How to build chromosome segregation machinery in meiosis and mitosis

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Genes must be passed on accurately from cell to cell and from parents to children.  Failure to do so can be a cause or contributing factor in human illnesses, such as cancer or reproductive/birth defects. Read more

Understanding the effect of antibiotic combinations: a quantitative approach

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Our society is currently facing an important problem with the rise of multiple antibiotic resistant bacterial strains. As the development of new antibiotics has stalled in recent years, new strategies are urgently needed to supplement current available therapies. Read more

Uncovering the basis of cellular self-regeneration

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Self-regeneration is a hallmark of all living cells and of life itself. Recent advances in bottom-up synthetic biology and mechanistic modelling now offer powerful tools to elucidate how cellular organisation gives rise to this key feature of living systems. Read more

Machine learning vs mechanistic models: how best to untangle biological principles?

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Our appetite for ever more detailed and complex data has made computation indispensable to biological research. Over the past decades, computational systems models that capture the mechanistic interplay between biological components, have brought major advances to ourunderstanding of the inner working of living cells.

Understanding the regulation of one of the main energy sources in living organisms, the Proton Motive Force

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Maintaining intracellular homeostases is a hallmark of life, and key physiological variables, such as cytoplasmic pH, osmotic pressure, and proton motive force (PMF), are typically interdependent. Read more

Multiscale engineering of biological assemblies

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
In this project the student will be involved in the re-engineering of protein-protein interactions, to enable new associations – both in vivo and in vitro. Read more

ACCE DTP fully funded studentship - Earthworms as ploughs and bioreactors: optimising management for sustainable soils

Earthworms are ecosystem engineers; burrowing significantly impacts soil causing substantial particle movement, influencing soil physical properties and affecting many soil ecosystem services including food production, water retention and carbon storage. Read more

ACCE DTP fully funded studentship - Bacterial cell envelope remodelling in Rhizobium leguminosarum: contribution to symbiosis and resistance to abiotic stress

Symbiotic interactions between plants and microbes are important for plant productivity and agricultural yield. The symbiotic relationship between legumes and rhizobia leads to the transformation of atmospheric nitrogen into ammonia utilized by plants. Read more

Synthetic-evolution: linking genomics to biophysics to understand the rules of life.

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
The genome of every organism encodes genes and regulatory elements required for building and maintaining cells in homeostasis. However, it is still unknown what is the minimal set of genomic elements necessary and sufficient for cellular life. Read more

Understanding the genetic basis of cancer and associated comorbidities using heritability analysis

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Decades of research have shown that inherited mutations in key genes can trigger tumorigenesis. However, this evidence has been limited to low-frequency highly penetrant mutations, typically found in patients affected by cancer syndromes, which represent only a small fraction of all malignancies.
