EASTBIO Structure-function analysis of a plant virus RNA transport protein

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
Background. Plant viruses are major crop pathogens which cause $60 billion annual damage to the global agri-economy and threaten sustainable food production. Read more

*Eastbio*: Serum albumin glycation and its impact on Zn2+-dependent haemostasis and insulin dynamics

Zinc is an essential micronutrient in mammals, vital to virtually all physiological pathways and processes. High nanomolar concentrations of free zinc ions (Zn2+) are cytotoxic; therefore, extracellular zinc is usually well-buffered. Read more

EASTBIO Colouring the patterns of molecular and phenotypic evolution.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. A paradox lies at the heart of the rules of life that govern organismal form and function. Organisms are built and maintained by networks of genes that interact, moment-to-moment, with each other and with the internal and external environment. Read more

EASTBIO How does a mammalian cell physically organise the complex processes of gene expression and regulation?

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Accurate gene expression and regulation in mammalian cells is a hugely complex process, essential for cellular and organismal homeostasis. Read more

EASTBIO COVID-19 Drug Discovery: Discovering Antiviral Compounds that Inhibit SARS-CoV-2 using a Cell-Based Approach.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. The COVID-19 pandemic is a global health and economic challenge. Despite successful vaccine development and ongoing vaccine rollout, effective treatment options are still urgently required for patients that succumb to serious disease. Read more

EASTBIO Antiviral Defence in Bacillus subtilis

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. All living things, from humans to bacteria, are subject to infection by viruses. For example, one third of the bacteria in the ocean are thought to be infected and killed every day. Read more

EASTBIO Bacterial selfishness, and how bacterial communities cope with nutrient shortage

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Most antibiotics target rapidly dividing bacteria. However, for the majority of their existence, bacteria grow in conditions where a few or most nutrients are limiting so that very little to no propagation takes place. Read more

EASTBIO Metabolic engineering to produce novel natural products as tools for understanding response to environmental changes.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Fatty acids and lipids are important factors in human health though our diets, and are essential for cellular homeostasis (membranes) and protein regulation (S-acylation, N-myristoylation, GPI anchors) in all eukaryotes. Read more

How does a mammalian cell physically organise the complex processes of gene expression and regulation?

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
Accurate gene expression and regulation in mammalian cells is a hugely complex process, essential for cellular and organismal homeostasis. Read more

Post-translation regulation of DNA polymerase activity at the eukaryotic replication fork

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
In all forms of life, successful high-fidelity chromosomal DNA replication requires the complex interplay of a variety of essential and non-essential protein factors in a spatially and temporally coordinated manner. Read more
