Degree projects on recombinant spider silk, KTH Biotech

Spider silk has an elegant way of combining strength and elasticity into a protein-based material. A miniature spider silk protein, 4RepCT, can be recombinantly produced in E. coli and still maintain the ability to spontaneously form silk-like fibers. Here are flexible opportunities to take part in many different ongoing projects on cell culture in silk, with different orientation, depending on the tissue aimed at mimicing or creating. Take a contact to see what master projects are available at the moment (or later during the academic year), and to see if anything is of interest to you!
