SSbio - Opportunities
Systems and Synthetic Biology Lab is looking for motivated graduate and undergraduate students for several research projects, including
- Genome-scale metabolic model development of Methylobacter and Methylomonas
- Identifying genetic intervention strategies for succinate overproduction from corn stover using Actinobacillus succinogenes genome-scale metabolic model
- Analyzing transcriptomic data on Heat stress in rice plants and creating a next-generation whole-plant scale rice model
The projects will address questions regarding the ecological and functional characteristics of natural microbes and inter-tissue interaction in plants using comprehensive mathematical models and 'omics'-based data analysis.
Interested students are rquested to email Professor Saha.
