Novel therapeutic agents active against Staphylococcus aureus

Project: Research project

Description

Antimicrobial resistance is a global problem and new antibiotics are needed urgently. Here a synthetic antimicrobial peptide biosynthetic gene clusters will be designed, synthesized chemically and expressed in surrogate hosts. This project has potential to provide a renewable source of antimicrobial peptides by biotechnological means and allow a new way to improve the biological activity of a known antimicrobial peptide using synthetic biology.
