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

Analysis of signaling pathways underlying development of human haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs)

  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
Background. Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) give rise to the adult blood system and are broadly used for transplantation into patients who have blood disorders or cancers and require restoration of their blood system. 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

Understanding the speciation process in a mega diverse genus

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Begonia is a genus of over 2,000 species, most are narrow endemics, with only a few widespread species. We wish to understand how distinct the species are by determining patterns of gene flow across the whole genome in sister species and populations. We will focus on two constrasting cases. .

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

New methods for detecting and quantifying genetic adaptation

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Understanding how populations adapt to their environment is a major focus of evolution research. Falling sequencing costs means genome data is more abundant than ever, but we still lack efficient methods for using it to infer and quantify the effects of natural selection. Read more

EASTBIO Mathematical models of RNA and protein synthesis dynamics and their integration with gene expression data

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Gene expression is the ultimate example of a dynamic complex system that includes thousands of regulatory parts interacting at various time scales. Read more
