EASTBIO: *Closing date 10.04.21*: Machine Learning with Molecular Dynamics to uncover allosteric mechanisms of capping enzymes

Molecular dynamics (MD) has matured into a powerful tool for studying dynamics and function of proteins with atomistic and femtosecond resolutions. Typical MD simulations (~microsecond timescale) produce large trajectories of high-dimensional data. A great challenge is to extract useful information about important protein properties from such large (terra- to petabytes) datasets.

EASTBIO: Harnessing host-microbiota interaction to sustainably enhance plant’s micronutrients uptake

Supervisors: Dr Davide Bulgarelli, Division of Plant Sciences and Dr Timothy George (The James Hutton Institute) 

This project aims at enhancing the plant’s uptake of mineral micronutrients by identifying the genetic determinants underpinning plant-microbiota interactions in the rhizosphere, the interface between roots and soil.
