James Sáenz TUD B CUBE Design principles of a minimal synthetic cell membrane

Design principles of a minimal synthetic cell membrane

This project will explore the biochemistry and biophysics of the cell membranes of Mycoplasma and the synthetic minimal cell (JCVI-Syn3.0). These simple organisms are model systems to explore the simplest design principles required to engineer a responsive synthetic membrane from the bottom up.

12 weeks Life Science, Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics
James Sáenz TUD B CUBE RNA-lipid interactions and the origin of life!

RNA-lipid interactions and the origin of life!

This project explores how RNA-lipid interactions could have contributed to the emergence of cellular life by constructing and studying the interactions of small membrane-binding RNAs with synthetic membranes.
Relevant papers: Janas, Tadeusz, Janas, T., & Yarus, M. (2006). Specific RNA binding to ordered phospholipid bilayers. Nucleic Acids Research, 34(7), 2128–2136
