Project Description

The purpose of this project is to create deep systems biology level understanding of the stresses placed upon an organism, under a range of fermentation conditions required for the large scale manufacture of biocatalysts, through the use of the complex analytical techniques of metabolomics and proteomics. The project seeks to understand how variation in the genetic constructs and process conditions used to direct protein production can affect the organism and how these effects might be mitigated against, minimized and controlled by further re-design of the genetic components, feed medium and process conditions. The development of robust fermentation processes has economic advantages, through both cycle time reduction and raw material efficiencies and will have clear impact beyond this study through the reliable and more economic commercial supply of enzymes to Industrial Biotechnology using industries.

Funding Notes

This studentship is only open to self-funding candidates. Self-funding candidates are expected to pay University fees and to provide their own living costs. In addition, a ‘bench fee’ will have to be paid to cover project running costs (at a level that will be determined specifically for each project).
