To create new knowledge and research tools by undertaking research activities within the established research project. This project aims to discover the function of mRNA cap methylation addressing what mRNAs are methylated at synapses to identify the cap code and how sequence context and interaction with other proteins contributes to methylation. This project uses the fruit-fly Drosophila as a model organism. The project will involve using the techniques of genetics and molecular biology including generation of reporter transgenes using Crispr/Cas9 genome editing, next generation sequencing, proteomics, immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, and some biochemical techniques. This project is funded by a BBSRC Grant as a collaboration between the Principal Investigator Dr Matthias Soller in the School of Biosciences, Prof. Jim Tucker in the School of Chemistry and Dr Roland Arnold in the Medical School of the University of Birmingham.
