Meintje de Vries
THIRD-YEAR STUDENT OF LIFE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
‘When I first thought about a degree programme, I initially thought of studying Biomedical Sciences, because I’d heard about it at school. I became interested in Molecular Life Sciences during a summer school for secondary school students that was organized by a team from the University. So I did my final exam assignment on probiotics.
For my Bachelor’s project, I approached the Molecular Genetics research group, because I knew they were doing research into interesting bacteria and proteins. I studied two proteins, MicrocinJ25 and Nisin. These proteins are known for their antibiotic effect and are produced by E. Coli and L. lactis. We tried to make a combination protein, hoping that this would lead to an even better antibiotic effect. That’s what I like about this degree programme: cutting and pasting DNA to make a cell do what you want it to!’
