In the past, other teams (Osaka, University College London) have explored the mechanisms of the bacteria Deinococcus radiodurans that provide resilience against high levels of radiation, salinity and oxidative stress . From here, the project first aims to determine... Secondly, we will explore a similar bacteria, Deinococcus hopiensis, as a novel source of these genes within the Deinococcus genus. For this purpose the project then uses the genes to transform a desiccation stress sensitive E. coli to improve the robustness of the cells against that particular stressors. Thirdly,...
