Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
Plants, insects, animals and humans produce natural peptide antibiotics in their secretions. In theory, producing these peptide antibiotics with Recombinant DNA Technology is possible. What is the aim of the project? The aim of the project is determine motifs of peptide antibiotics and produce them with recombinant DNA technology. What techniques and methods will be used? Recombinant DNA Technology.Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)? There will be lectures and practical training about the basis of recombinant DNA technology and peptide antibiotics What is the role of the student and what is expected from him/her during the research exchange? Learn and apply microbiology and molecular biology techniques like culturing bacteria, performing susceptibility tests, plasmid DNA isolation, pouring and running electrophoresis gels, DNA amplification by PCR.
