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

Understanding the molecular basis of piRNA-directed DNA methylation in the mammalian germline

  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
In mammals, transposons are silenced throughout most of life by DNA methylation. The mammalian germline is derived from somatic cells early during development. 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

Antiviral RNA-binding proteins

Most clinically important viruses have a genome composed of RNA or generate RNA intermediates during their replication. For this reason, the host cell has developed specialised RNA-binding proteins that detect the presence of the viral RNAs. Read more

Bacterial nanoparticle synthesis in alternative hosts

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
 . Metal nanoparticle synthesis has been observed in several species of bacteria but the underlying mechanisms of synthesis are not well understood. 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. Read more

Identifying complex gene regulatory motifs with multi-layer neural networks

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Gene expression is regulated by proteins that bind specific sequences of nucleic acids. Massive progress has been made towards understanding how transcription factors bind DNA to control transcription. 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
