Bioenergy value chains

Most energy system studies of the UK indicate a strong role for bioenergy in the coming decades, especially if the UK is to meet its climate change mitigation ambitions. However, there is a need to understand how bioenergy systems can be implemented without negative sustainability-related impacts.

Gene Regulation and Cellular Biotechnology

The regulated expression of genes is central to all forms of life. Our research group brings together researchers who study (1) processes central to the expression of genes (transcription, splicing and translation) and the regulatory mechanisms that control these events (modifications, interactions and localisation and (2) the impact of environmental cues and stresses on cellular functions.
