Showing 1 to 10 of 25
  Cyanobacterial synthetic biology tools derived from bacteriophages
  Dr Y Yuzenkova
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
As a society we have responsibility to move towards greener technology and industry. Great advances of synthetic biology in recent years enable better and better mechanisms for solution of world problems.
  Epigenetic control of transcription termination in plant development
  Dr M Papamichos-Chronakis
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
This project will investigate the mechanism and function of epigenetic regulation of transcriptional termination in eukaryotes (from budding yeast to plants).
  Exploring the importance of fungal-specific aspects of RNase MRP in ribosome production
  Dr C Schneider
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Fungal contamination leading to reduced harvest and post-harvest food spoilage accounts for the loss of 10- 20% of food production worldwide.
  How do cells generate functional asymmetries?
  Dr J Rodriguez
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The lab (https://www.staff.ncl.ac.uk/josana.rodriguez/) enjoys state of the art equipment and is situated in the ambitious and supportive research environment of the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences (https://www.ncl.ac.uk/camb/), within the Medical School at Newcastle University (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK).
  Mechanisms of interbacterial competition during Staphylococcus aureus colonisation
  Dr T Palmer
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Before they can cause disease, bacteria need to colonise their hosts. To do so they must establish a niche among the resident microbiota.
  Novel RNA polymerases, and insights into molecular biology of agricultural, biotechnological and pathogenic bacteria containing them
  Prof N Zenkin
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
In synthetic biology and biotechnology, there is an urgent need for alternative orthologous expression platforms for protein and RNA production and building complex synthetic networks.
  Optimising protein production from high density Bacillus subtilis cultures by suppressing autolysis
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis is a highly amenable industrial production host used to produce numerous commercially valuable enzymes.
  Plant fibre degradation by the human and animal gut microbiota
  Dr D Bolam
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The gut microbiota of many mammals, including humans and farmed animals, plays a critical role in the digestion of plant polysaccharides (often called dietary fibre) from crops and the products of this anaerobic fermentation provide major health benefits to the host.
  Regulation of ribosome modification as a means to enhance anti-fungal antibiotic efficacy
  Dr N Watkins
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
10-20% of worldwide food, from reduced harvest and post-harvest food spoilage, is lost due to fungal contamination. Food loss is due to contamination with mycotoxins such as aflatoxins, which are potent carcinogens and cause severe liver damage.
  Targeting stress activated MAPK pathways in eukaryotic pathogens
  Prof J Quinn
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Candida albicans is a major fungal pathogen of humans causing over 400,000 deaths per annum. Systemic Candida infections are difficult to treat as current anti-fungal drugs are limited and cause undesirable side-effects.
