PhD and MSc Opportunity: Investigate the Role of ABCF Proteins in Translation and Antibiotic Resistance
The Antibiotic Resistance Research Group at the BIOCEV center is seeking dedicated students (BSc, MSc, PhD) to contribute to research of ABCF proteins and their impact on translation and antibiotic resistance.
Project Scope: Investigation of the biological function and molecular mechanisms of ABCF proteins in antibiotic-producing filamentous bacteria of the genus Streptomyces sp.
Understanding ABCF Proteins: This research opportunity focuses on investigating the biological function and molecular mechanisms of ABCF proteins in antibiotic-producing bacteria of the genus Streptomyces sp. ABCF ATPases are translational factors that play an important role in Streptomyces in regulating antibiotic production and response to translational stress, including protection of the ribosome from antibiotics. Most of the 30 bacterial ABCF subfamilies are still unexplored, providing an exciting opportunity for discovery.
