RNA-Binding Properties and Functions of Peptidoglycan Synthesis Enzymes in Antibiotic Resistance

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Introduction. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is causing major healthcare problems worldwide and is becoming increasingly challenging to treat with current antibiotics. Read more

Transcription: molecular mechanisms & dynamics

Background/Questions. Transcription is central to all life, but many things remain unclear. In particular in eukaryotes, many contributing factors and mechanistic details have been identified for transcription of mRNAs by RNA polymerase II (Pol2), but a number of phenomena remain enigmatic, including. Read more

Structural biology of bile acid transporters, important in disease

Secondary transporters are membrane transporters that move molecules across membranes. They are important in drug discovery, either as specific drug targets or because they allow the movement of drugs into or out of cells. Read more

Size regulation of intracellular nanovesicles

Eukaryotic cells are compartmentalized. they contain organelles and membrane-bound domains that each have distinct identities. For example, the endoplasmic reticulum is different to the Golgi apparatus. Read more

Reactive nitrogen biogeochemistry in agronomic systems

Volatile reactive nitrogen oxides (NOy), comprised of NOx (NO + NO2) and NOz (HONO + HNO3 + N2O5 + …), negatively impact air quality as they are precursors… Read more

Rational Design of Novel Aptamers to Understand and Resist Snake Envenomation

Every five minutes, fifty people are bitten by a snake worldwide – of whom, four will be permanently disabled and one will die. In fact, snake envenomation is a neglected tropical disease (NTD) that requires urgent attention. Read more

Interactions in the microbiome – the effect of spatial organisation

Microbiome research is expanding. This is a natural progression, as no microbe lives in isolation in Nature. From guts of animals, to the soil and the ocean, every environment inhabited by microbes contains 100s of species co-existing. Read more

Integration of environmental signals in plants

Plants use a diversity of signals from the environment to make decisions during their life cycle. This project will focus on understanding how multiple signals from the environment are integrated to control seed dormancy. Read more

Engineering dynamic microbial factories for sustainable biomanufacturing and drug production

Engineering microbial cell factories using synthetic biology enables the production of new therapeutics or sustainable routes to the manufacture of high value chemicals from agricultural by-products. Read more

Do common ancient gene regulatory programmes govern both neural and pancreatic fates throughout vertebrate evolution?

The vertebrate body is inherently complex, containing diverse tissues consisting of multiple distinct cell types. Assignment of specific cellular identities at the correct location and time during embryogenesis is essential to establishing a viable vertebrate body plan. Read more

Determining how phosphorylation drives functional protein interactions

Phosphorylation is one of the most highly studied posttranslational modifications, due to its fundamental importance in regulating protein function, interactions, subcellular localisation, and turnover. Read more

Building the first heart vessel

How does the heart form? Despite the large array of adult heart morphologies across nature, the initial heart vessel typically forms as a simple tubular structure. Read more
