Honours project: Study new enzymes and the associated ferredoxins from bacteria found in interesting environments (or genes from metagenomes) or which carry out novel reactions.
Honours project: Use approaches to generate enzyme catalyst based systems to develop greener and sustainable processes for the production of useful and high value chemicals.
Honours project: Address the fundamental science behind the use of the steroid cholesterol as a source of energy by bacteria.
Honours project: Undertake behavioural analysis of zebrafish models in order to help find treatments for Alzheimer's Disease.
Honours project: Use a new phage-based directed evolution approach to evolve proteins with properties to make them suitable for use in synthetic circuit applications, such as in vivo biosensing or construction of bistable switches.
Honours project: This honours project will use analogous strategies to express, purify, crystallise and solve structures of mammalian bHLH/PAS proteins.
Honours project: Explore the signalling pathways that induce NPAS4, which is highly induced in neurons during epileptic seizure, where it functions to dampen hyperexcitation.
Honours project: Gain a stronger understanding of general receptor allostery as well as structure guided drug design.
Honours project: This project involves the bioinformatic analysis of zebrafish models of Alzheimer's Disease.
