Introduction to provider and scholarship:-
Under this program two no of PhD scholarships in microalgal biotechnology are being given the work within which will focus on optimization of photosynthetic electron generation and redirection of electrons to power the synthesis of mid-to-high-value bioactives. To meet this challenge more information is required on factors and processes controlling regulation of photosynthesis and biosynthetic genes of the bioactives. Two targets have been selected, which form the basis for a PhD project.
The offered is made by the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen and the scholarship can be taken at Denmark.
