MIISSB POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE link
The long-term goal of the Millennium Institute for Integrative Systems and Synthetic Biology (MIISSB) is to understand how environmental perturbations control plant and fungal properties as individuals, and also as interacting entities. These studies consider the effect of genetic variability, abiotic perturbations (nitrogen, light, temperature), biological interactions (beneficial or detrimental) and the molecular mechanisms that govern time-dependent genetic programs, such as circadian and developmental processes.
Through an ambitious plan based on new open source synthetic biology technologies, integrative bioinformatics, systems biology, cutting-edge genomics, and molecular genetics approaches we aspire to advance the understanding of the genetic responses of plant and fungi to environmental cues.
The MIISSB is born from the interaction between two successful Millennium Nuclei (MN) the MN for Fungal Integrative and Synthetic Biology and the MN Center for Plant Systems and Synthetic Biology.
The MIISSB brings together 6 different labs, in strong collaboration with 4 other groups in Santiago, as well as Valdivia.
