Metabarcoding, using the latest deep sequencing technology, is revolutionising how we assess biological communities. This inter-disciplinary studentship project aims to develop a completely novel application of this technology.
The three-dimensional space around and between mammalian cells is filled with a complex network of extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules, which instruct fundamental processes such as cell survival, differentiation and migration, in addition to providing structural support for cells.
Applications are invited for a three-year PhD studentship to develop bioelectrochemical systems (BES) for remediation and resource recovery, in the Food, Water, Waste Research Group (FWW), Faculty of Engineering, University of Nottingham (UoN).
The production of chemicals from renewable sources is a key for a sustainable future. Various compounds can be produced by bacteria and yeast carrying synthetic metabolic pathways assembled of multiple genes derived from other organisms.
The University of Nottingham seeks an enthusiastic PhD candidate to work on an exciting multi-disciplinary project that brings together the techniques of synthetic biology, analytical science and systems biology.
