Bachelor/Master thesis: „Establishment of a realtime RT-qPCR for quantitation of defective interfering particles of influenza virus A“

The Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg, Bioprocess Engineering (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Reichl), has an opening for a Bachelor / Master thesis:
 
„Establishment of a realtime RT-qPCR for quantitation
of defective interfering particles of influenza virus A
 
Defective interfering particles (DIPs) are a sub-population of influenza virus that possess internal deletions in one or more gene segments but retain both termini of the parental virus genome. Hence, they can be replicated in the presence of a standard virus (STV), which supplies the missing protein(s). In co-infected cells, DIPs accumulate strongly and impede the replication of the STV leading to lower virus titers. Little is known about the molecular mechanisms involved. Furthermore, the impact of DIPs on vaccine production as well as product quality remains largely elusive.

About Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems

In 1996 the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems was established. The foundation director is Prof. em. Dr.-Ing. Ernst Dieter Gilles. The institute in Magdeburg is the first institute of the Max Planck Society dedicated to the engineering sciences and is supposed to bridge the gap between basic research and industrial applications. The neighbourhood to the Otto...
