    [show details]

    Description

    This PhD project will unravel the biomechanical principles of bacterial microcompartments, termed carboxysomes, which are essential for carbon fixation. We will use state - of - the - art microscopy technique named atomic force microscopy , combined with molecular genetics , biochemistry and synthetic biology , to determine the biomechanics during the structural deformation of the organelles and the self - assembly process of individual proteins at the molecular resolution. By doing so, we will achieve the mechanical "fingerprints” of natural and designed organelles and eludicate how these structural building blocks assemble in a controllable manner to form and stabilize the entire organelles. Our goal is to provide essential information to guide the design, engineering and the ultimate manipulation of metabolic factories in a predictive context. The research outputs will have broader applications in the field of self - assembling organelles and protein engineering to generate new nanoreactors and scaffolding biomaterials. Lessons learned from this biological system are also instrumental to studies in physics, chemistry, nanotechnology and bioengineering.
