Primary cilia and polycystic kidney disease New
This project will investigate how specific membrane proteins, mutated in human Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD), are dynamically transported in and out of sensory antenna on the cell surface via molecular motor
Greenhouse gas emission from plants and soil analysed by concentration and isotope methods New
How will climate change and other environmental impacts affect greenhouse gas emission from mire, heath, forest or tundra ecosystems? Explore this in more detail by novel techniques using CO2 and CH4 concentration and isotopes
Are eucalypt leaf volatiles inducible? New
This project will provide valuable insight into how eucalypt trees respond to biotic stress, and the possibility to identify new compounds that may only be synthesized and or emitted in response to herbivore attack.
The moss food web: Interactions between moss, micro and mesofauna New
Who is eating who in the moss foodweb?
Bacterial diversity and function in marine waters - molecular microbiology projects New
Many options available for an exciting project related to our ongoing research on diversity, composition and functionality of bacteria in the marine water column.
Will polar deserts become greener? New
Interested in the Arctic, plants and climate change? Conduct fieldwork for your MSc project in Zackenberg, NE Geenland and become a part of a research team investigating what 25 years increased rainfall does to a polar desert.
Targeting membrane repair processes in cancer cells New
• Plasma membrane repair as a potential target to eliminate cancer cells. • Exploring the role of calcium binding proteins in membrane repair using CRISPR modified cancer cells. • Cell handling, microscopy, FACS, protein analysis.
Disordered proteins in the ubiquitin-proteasome system New
Functional analyses or disordered proteins in signalling and degradation using molecular genetics and protein chemistry.
Structural destabilization as a trigger for hereditary disease New
Exploring how genetic variants affect the encoded proteins to trigger disease.
Bacteriophage control of microbial biofilms - Pseudomonas aeruginosa from CF patients New
The project aims at investigating the potential of using bacteriophages for controlling the pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa in biofilms, using microbiological and molecular biological methods.
