MSc by Research programme - ADP-ribosylation in dementia and motor neuron disease

ADP-ribosylation is a fundamental posttranslational modification where ADP-ribose is linked on to target proteins by ADP-ribose transferases and removed by the ADP-ribose hydrolases. Read more

MSc by Research programme - A walk on the wild side: unravelling the functional significance of the wild and domesticated barley microbiota

The proposed project will be integrated into our of our long-term efforts to decipher the structure, function and host control of the microbiota inhabiting the rhizosphere, the thin layer of soil adhering to plant roots, and determine its presumed contributions to plant growth and health using barley (Hordeum vulgare) as an experimental model.

EASTBIO: How cells prevent errors in chromosome inheritance during cell division

Human cells store their genetic information in 46 chromosomes. To maintain this vital genetic information, a complete set of chromosomes must be inherited precisely by each daughter cell after cell division. Read more

EASTBIO: Your Best Face Forward - how cereals regulate their epidermal surfaces

Plants living on land face brutal conditions with threats from pests, dehydration and temperature extremes. To survive and thrive on land, plants evolved a specialised surface, sealed by a waxy ‘cuticle’ and distinctive epidermal cells such as gas pores and defensive barbs. Read more

EASTBIO: Understanding how plant pathogen effector proteins contribute to host range and nonhost disease resistance

Crop diseases destroy more than 25 % of our food each year. Protecting crops with pesticides represents a considerable financial and environmental challenge. To develop new strategies to combat disease it is important to understand the molecular and cell biology of how microbial plant pathogens cause disease.  .

EASTBIO: Intraspecies competition mechanisms in Bacillus subtilis

Microbial consortia influence our environment in countless ways. These multispecies communities have a direct impact on bioremediation cycles, our health, and food production processes. Read more

EASTBIO: Deciphering the role of translation in temperature-controlled development

Project Description for Find-A-PhD Advert (max 400 words). This will be the text that is advertised to prospective students. Ambient temperature has profound effects on almost all aspects of plant development, from the onset of seed germination and seedling establishment to flower and fruit production. Read more

MSc by Research programme- Does increasing stability of Notch affect formation of the segmented body axis?

Notch is one of the major highly conserved signalling pathways that regulate cell-cell communication which involves gene regulation mechanisms that control multiple processes during development and adult life, including cell fate specification within progenitors. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Uncovering the role of Phosphorylated ubiquitin in health and disease

Ubiquitylation represents a major post-translational modification that controls numerous cellular processes. In the course of our research studies into Parkinson’s disease mechanisms, we discovered that ubiquitin itself can be modified by phosphorylation. Read more
