Periodic Report Summary 1 - SUBGRODIS (Application of advanced technologies and stochastic modeling in the study of submarine groundwater discharge)
Submarine Groundwater Discharge (SGD) is the subsurface flow of continental water to estuaries and the sea and it has become increasingly in focus during recent years due to both its environmental and societal implications. The discharge of groundwater with high contaminant...

Final Report Summary - DNAMET (DNA methylation, hydroxymethylation and cancer)
DNA methylation patterns are frequently perturbed in human diseases such as imprinting disorders and cancer. In cancer increased aberrant DNA methylation is believed to work as a silencing mechanism for tumor suppressor genes. The high frequency of abnormal DNA methylation...

Final Report Summary - ARTEMIS (Autoimmune Reaction or Tolerance - Endosymbiont Mitochondria and the Immune System)
ARTEMIS – Final Report Our immune system has the central role to protect us from infectious agents, but at the same time has to avoid reacting with our own tissues. The ARTEMIS project has investigated the balance between autoimmune reaction and tolerance, with a special...

Final Report Summary - SFM (Supervision in Factor Models: Improving Economic Forecasts)
Dynamic factor models constitute an active and growing area of research, both in econometrics, in macroeconomics, and in finance. Many applications lie at the center of policy questions raised by the recent financial crises, such as the connections between yields on...

Final Report Summary - KINOMEDRIFT (Specificity Drift in The Kinome During Cancer Development and Evolution)
Cellular processes such as cell growth, death and motility are controlled by complex networks of cellular signals. These cellular signals are initiated and maintained by a specialized set of enzymes called kinases. Kinases act on other proteins in the cell by phosphorylating...

Final Report Summary - CHROMATINREPLICATION (How to Replicate Chromatin - Maturation, Timing Control and Stress-Induced Aberrations)
Generally, all cells in the human body contains the same genomic information. However, different cell types have different properties and serve different functions in the body. So-called epigenetic mechanisms are involved in the establishment and maintenance of the different...

Final Report Summary - SEXSEL (Investigating the joint role of balancing and positive selection in mating systems evolution)
The evolution of sex (and outcrossing more generally) is one of the biggest and most controversial research areas in evolutionary genetics. Investigating facultative outcrossers, who alternate between sex and a kind of uniparental reproduction, allows researchers to study the...

Final Report Summary - MICROENERGY (Microbial life under extreme energy limitation)
Half of all prokaryotic microorganisms in the ocean subsist in the deep subsurface seabed with a mean cellular energy flux that is orders of magnitude below anything studied in laboratory cultures so far. Yet, these microorganisms drive major processes in the geosphere...

Final Report Summary - PERSIST (Bacterial Persistence)
The ERC-funded research project PERSIST has determined that randomly produced amounts of a signaling molecule can prompt a multidrug-tolerant state found in one in every million bacterial cells. Populations of many disease-causing bacteria contain ‘persisters’:...
