Project Description

During evolution of the adative immune system, antigen-binding-receptor molecules developed that are able to recognise antigens but do not carry signalling transmitting capacity. Adaptor molecules evolved that transmit signals through the antigen binding receptors into the antigen specific cells. The aim of the project is to understand the evolutionary path of the development of antigen binding receptors and the associated adaptor molecules.

This project requires skills in computer programming, understanding of bio-informatics programs, understanding of signalling cascades in immune cells.
