A fully funded PhD position in Microbiology

The thesis project is part of our study of cell differentiation in a multicellular cyanobacterium (Anabaena). This prokaryote is a perfect model to address questions related to multicellularity, development, cell-cell communication and single cell investigations. Under specific growth conditions, one cell every ten vegetative cells (red in the figure) differentiates into a distinct cell type […]
