Using Microbial Dark Matter and Computational Models to Streamline Synthetic Nitrogenase Pathways (EoI -TSP3-05)

Application deadline:

The selected candidate will work in the context of the project entitled “Using Microbial Dark Matter and Computational Models to Streamline Synthetic Nitrogenase Pathways”, in collaboration with other experimental and computational groups at CBGP. Planned tasks involve: i) metagenomics data mining and global survey of novel nitrogen fixing gene variants from environmental samples, ii) evolutionary analysis of functionally divergent orthologs representing novel branches from different nitrogenase components, and iii) target enrichment experiments to expand the number of observed nitrogenase gene variants.
