EASTBIO Tying up loose ends: studying the molecular interactions that protect chromosome ends

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
Telomeres are nucleoprotein complexes that protect the ends of chromosomes, thereby preventing DNA damage and genome instability. Read more

EASTBIO The Role of Protein Methylation in the Differentiation and Function of Motor Neurones

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. The methylation of proteins is a key post-translational modification used for fine-tuning vital cellular processes. In recent years, it has become apparent that proper regulation of protein methylation is vital for the correct formation of sub-cellular structures, including nuclear Cajal bodies and gems. Read more

EASTBIO Shaping tissues by pulsed contractions – studying the role of endocytic hubs in actomyosin contractility

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. To shape tissues and organs, cells need to exert forces on their neighbours and respond to them. Individual cells can generate forces with their actin cytoskeleton. Read more

EASTBIO Probing the mechanism and dynamics of Staphylococcus aureus m1A22-tRNA methyltransferase

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
S. aureus has been a leading cause of healthcare- and community-associated infections worldwide, with a number of patients infected with methicillin-resistant S. Read more

EASTBIO Nest building and reproductive success

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
It may seem obvious that a bird’s nest plays an important role in reproduction. For example, the eggs or young in a nest that is exposed to predators, in a nest that gets too wet or too cold or is too loosely attached to a branch are unlikely to survive. Read more

EASTBIO Machine Learning methods for Experimental Evolution studies

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Evolutionary biologists have long been interested in the question how populations adapt to changing environments. In experimental evolution studies replicate populations are allowed to adapt to novel but controlled laboratory environments. Read more

EASTBIO Identifying, characterising and engineering plant cell wall degrading enzymes for biofuel production

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
The effects of climate change have never been more apparent, which demands an urgent need for cleaner and greener processes for energy production. Read more

EASTBIO Genome-wide investigation of bovine respiratory virus infection and host defence

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) – commonly known as “shipping fever” - affects millions of feedlot calves every year and, in addition to causing significant animal welfare issues, is a major cause of economic loss throughout the world. Read more

EASTBIO Engineering the genome of bacteriophage T5

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
Bacteriophage T5 is a model E. coli-infecting lytic phage with a 121 kb linear double-stranded DNA genome that is arranged into pre-early, early and late transcription units, encoding in total around 160 proteins and 20-25 tRNAs. Read more

EASTBIO Disrupting bacterial biofilms with peptide-coated hydrogels

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Biofouling is the accumulation of microorganisms in a surface, ultimately causing degradation and decay. If devices are in contact with water and moisture it will occur to ships, medical devices, and several instruments employed in manufacturing. Read more

EASTBIO COVID-19 Drug Discovery: Discovering Antiviral Compounds that Inhibit SARS-CoV-2

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