News: Honours projects - Molecular and biomedical science: Genetics
Honours project: This genetics and molecular pathology project explores the use of gene therapy to treat inherited brain disease in children.
Honours project: This project in epigenetics and plant reproductive biology will examine the role of a histone demethylase (H3K9me2) during seed development.
Honours project: Investigate the role of an RNA m5C methyltransferase during early reproductive development as mutants abort early during seed development.
Honours project: Investigate the molecular biology of the function of Alzheimer's disease genes.
Honours project: Undertake behavioural analysis of zebrafish models in order to help find treatments for Alzheimer's Disease.
Honours project: Investigate the role IQSEC2 and synaptic morphology and plasticity on the orchestration of the complex architecture required for ‘normal’ cognition.
Honours project: Investigate the role of the eIF2α/ATF4 pathway in stress-induced transcription of non-TFEB genes.
Honours project: Characterise molecular and cellular changes driving improvements to disease outcomes after postnatal 17B-estradiol treatment in mice modeling intellectual disability and seizures.
Honours project: This project investigates the molecular basis of echidna biology for application in conservation, wildlife management and habitat monitoring.
Honours project: This project in genetics and molecular pathology examines the characterisation of patient derived stem cells.
