The unique dioxygenases of phytophagous spider mites: new enzyme players in plant-herbivore interactions?
ID: 658795
Start date: 2015-09-01, End date: 2017-08-31
Detoxification of poisonous xenobiotics in animals is typically performed by multi-gene enzyme families. Within arthropods, only insect genomes have been studied in detail where these families are well characterized. I recently uncovered a new enzyme family in the genome of a...

The epigenetic basis of early-life effects in a wild bird exposed to urban environmental stress
ID: 659643
Start date: 2015-04-01, End date: 2017-03-31
The impact of urbanisation on wildlife is of increasing global concern. It is well known that exposure to urban environmental stressors increases oxidative stress. More recently, exposure to pollutants has been shown to directly modify the epigenome, via DNA methylation, in...

Digestive and nutritional indicators of feed efficiency in cattle fed forage-based diets
ID: 658126
Start date: 2015-09-01, End date: 2017-08-31
As the human population approaches 9.5 billion in 2050, and societies as a whole become more affluent, the demand for meat and milk is projected to nearly double. The current challenge facing humanity is to achieve food security in a sustainable manner. As such, sustainable...

Geochemical-physical coupled study of the modern Arctic Ocean: GEOTRACES-ARCTIC
ID: 657853
Start date: 2015-07-01, End date: 2018-06-30
Climate-driven alterations of the Arctic Ocean (sea ice cover, hydrography, circulation) strongly influence biological productivity and ecosystem structure. At present, our ability to evaluate the full impact of these changes and predict their future trajectory is limited by a...

Advanced MIcroscopy of Attine ant BacteriaL Endosymbionts
ID: 660255
Start date: 2015-09-01, End date: 2017-08-31
SummaryMost animals crucially depend on bacterial symbionts for digesting food and for optimal health, and such associations are particularly relevant for farming societies that produce their own food. Next to humans, the fungus-growing ants have realized the largest and most...

Genomics, epigenomics and transcriptomics of Yakutian horses, a unique domestic breed adapted to life in the Arctic
ID: 657852
Start date: 2015-09-15, End date: 2017-09-14
Yakutia (Sakha Republic, Russian Federation) is the coldest country in the Northern hemisphere with winter record temperatures as low as -70ºC. Despite such extreme conditions, the Yakut people succeeded in developing an economy based on extensive horse and cattle breeding...

Sea ice across Dansgaard-Oeschger events in Greenland
ID: 658120
Start date: 2015-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
The Last Glacial climate of the Northern Hemisphere was punctuated by abrupt millennial scale changes called Dansgaard-Oeschger (DO) events, clearly recorded by Greenland ice core temperature proxies. The underlying mechanism responsible for the recurring cycles of ~10°C...

Antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes, associated with urban agriculture in Low and Middle Income Countries: Ecological and medical perspectives
ID: 655398
Start date: 2015-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
About 20 million hectares of arable lands are irrigated with wastewaters in the world and almost nothing is known about the presence, evolution and dissemination of antibiotic resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes in these fields, and...

Microbial biogeography of the gastrointestinal tract: Towards a better understanding of the drivers of oral and colorectal cancer development.
ID: 661019
Start date: 2015-04-01, End date: 2017-03-31
The human microbiome plays essential roles in modulating human health and disease. Based on preliminary data as well as previously published work, I hypothesise that 1) the oral cavity acts as a reservoir of microbes which continuously seed the gut and that 2) specific...
