PhD – Whole cell production of glycans

Start: 01/08/2016

Application: 24/05/2016 - 19/06/2016

Project description Aim of the project is the production of glycans in a whole cell system. As a starting point a suitable production host will be selected. The most promising candidate will be engineered for efficient oligosaccharide production. This will include the implementation of a pathway for donor formation from affordable starting materials as well […]

PhD – O-glycosylation of recombinant proteins

Start: 01/09/2016

Application: 24/05/2016 - 30/06/2016

Research field In yeast, O-glycosylation of proteins is predominantly formed by mannose residues and initiated in the endoplasmic reticulum by protein mannosyltransferases (PMTs). In the yeast Pichia pastoris, O-glycans encompass only 1-4 mannose residues but exhibit essential glycosylation heterogeneity, which is unwanted for the production of proteins for biopharmaceutical use. The objective of this project […]

PhD – Microfluidic screening platform

Start: 01/09/2016

Application: 24/05/2016 - 30/06/2016

Research field Microorganisms such as bacteria, yeasts and filamentous fungi are valuable platforms for the industrial production of chemicals, enzymes and pharmaceutical proteins. While some products are produced based on natural metabolic pathways, most processes rely on genetically engineered strains, where a suitable screening procedure is essential for the identification of the best producers. Typically, cells are cultivated in […]

PhD – Sexual development in Aspergillus niger

Start: 01/09/2016

Application: 24/05/2016 - 30/06/2016

Research Field Sexual reproduction is an important concept to promote genetic variation. Especially for breeding experiments it is known that new beneficial mutations can be combined via a sexual state to improve a strain or species. Although the majority of Aspergillus species are only known to reproduce by asexual means, it was found, that several […]
