Project

Drugs perfumes and other production in plant cells

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Through genetic engineering of the simple moss plant, this project will elucidate novel enzymes that produce novel terpenoids. The terpenoids can be used as perfumes or in drugs, which will depend on the compound produced. The unknown enzymes are all found in small plants like Liverworts. The project will include genetic engineering, analytical chemistry to identify the products, and also some transcriptomic analysis.

There are many variants of this project, and thus it can be fitted to suit the number of ECTS points you need.

Requirements

Strong synthetic biology background/interest is needed, though of causes depending on where you are in your study.
