    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    The goal of the Project is to reveal currently unknown molecular details of protein synthesis, a step of gene expression that is central to all of life. To achieve this, innovative methods based on next-generation sequencing will be deployed in the yeast model organism. The intended outcomes of this work will transform our understanding of how genes function. In this way, the project aims to strengthen Australias profile in genomics research and provide attractive postgraduate training opportunities. Yeasts are of importance as pathogens as well as in the food and biotechnology industry sector. Thus, new knowledge generated in this project will help solve problems of invasive pathogenic behaviour and biomass production.
