CRISPR-dCas9 as a tool for specific loci purification Ny
Do you seek to overcome challenges that no one dares to tackle? By fusing inactive version of “molecular scissors” CRISPR-Cas9 (dCas9) with an effector, we seek to develop a cutting-edge method for precise DNA isolation in plants.
Investigation of carbohydrate active enzymes and their adaptations for crystallinity
Cellulose-degrading enzymes play a major role in the transition to a bio-based economy. LPMO enzymes have the ability to act on crystalline regions of the cellulose, unlocking the full potential of biomass as an energy source.
The thermal window for aerobic scope in shallow water marine bivalves Ny
Low oxygen are common in the marine environment. When low oxygen becomes limiting for the benthic fauna is important. The thermal window for aerobic scope is equally important to study as it sets the limits for normal activity.
Bacteriophage therapy - a new method for controlling pathogenic bacteria in aquaculture Ny
The project aims at developing alternatives to antibiotics in for disease control in aquaculture, using the bacteria’s natural enemies – the bacteriophages, and exploring the potential of bacteriophage therapy.
Crowdsourcing the Evaluation of interpretability methods for NLP or computer vision Ny
Interpretability methods such as LIME, SHAP, LIMSI etc. aim to learn post-hoc explanations for why NLP/CV models behave the way they do.
Utilizing Nature’s Vast Chemical Library for the Discovery of LPMO Inhibitors
LPMO enzymes play a role in pathogen attack of plants, insects and even humans. Join us to discover LPMO inhibitors, which can hold a great potential and may contribute to the development of tailored antimicrobial agents
Mini-gustducin: A novel tool for studying taste receptors in their active conformation Ny
Join the Autzen Lab to help us understand the molecular mechanisms involved in taste perception. Projects available at the BSc and MSc levels, and ERASMUS students with the relevant biochemical background.
Consumer perception and behaviour in relation to Plant-based food and Food waste reduction Ny
Food supply chain waste valorisation Ny
