Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

  1. Biophysical characterization of polyhydroxyalkanoates in-vivo and ex-vivo

    The focus of this thesis is the analysis of physicochemical properties of bacterial polyesters polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) with respect to their native form in bacterial cells (in-vivo) as well as concerning the characterization of the materials after extraction from the bacterial cell (ex-vivo). The goal is to understand the unique properties of these materials in the context of their biological functions and design and test employment of the materials in advanced applications (delivery systems, medical applications etc.).

  4. Study of the plasma activated water application on soil organic components

    The environmentally friendly farming methods and procedures became a hot topic during the last years. One of possible ways is the application of plasma activated water. Water exposed to plasmas contains not only oxidative species (mainly hydrogen peroxide) but also species with antibacterial and fungicide properties (like peroxynitrile), all in dependence on plasma conditions. Moreover, it is possible to generate nitrites and nitrides that can be applied in form of spray through on leaves as fertilizers. A part of this spray terminates on soil and there is unknown up to now how this application changes the soil properties, especially properties of soil organic parts. The PhD study will be dialled on the detail study of plasma activated water application on different soil types with focus on the soil organic matter and microorganisms. The experimental work will use diagnostics available not at home faculty, only, but also at other European laboratories under the frame network of COST Action CA19110. The work will be continuously discussed with soil specialists from Mendel University in Brno.
