HISTORY OF THE FRENCH POLITICAL SCIENCE LEXICON
ID: 208986
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
The scientific research project submitted to the ERC intends to examine the creation of the French political science lexicon from a linguistic point of view. Most of the Political science vocabulary that the French language uses today comes from the translations from Latin an...

Quantitative Evolution
[PROJECT] QUANTEVOL - Quantitative Evolution
ID: 206734
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
In the context of unprecedented anthropogenic forcing in the living world, the speed and mechanisms of evolution remain the key to many questions ranging from pathogens adaptation to the dynamics of biodiversity. To what extent can evolutionary theory make predictions? What w...

Stable isotope investigations on the adaptations of Neolithic husbandry to the diverse climatic and environmental settings of Eastern, Central and Western Europe
ID: 202881
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-02-28
Twenty-first century European husbandry results from thousand-year-old experiences. This project aims at giving a historical dimension to the growing questioning on present day herding practices among European consumers. Sheep, goat, cattle and pig were domesticated ca. 8500 ...

Self-Modulating Neurons in the Cerebral Cortex: From Molecular Mechanisms to Cortical Network Activities
ID: 200808
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-03-31
In the mammalian brain, the neocortex is the site where sensory information is integrated into complex cognitive functions. This is accomplished by the activity of both principal glutamatergic neurons and locally-projecting inhibitory GABAergic interneurons, interconnected in...

The role of RNA silencing in immunity and development in eukaryotes
ID: 210890
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2012-07-31
RNA silencing is a pan-eukaryotic gene regulation process that involves RNA molecules 19-30nt in length. These molecules are produced by RNAse-III proteins in the Dicer family and engage into sequence-specific regulation of complementary DNA or RNA upon their incorporation in...

Seeds of life - analysis of seed growth and development
ID: 210867
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Flowering plants have evolved as one predominant life form on earth. One common principle of flowering plants and probably one of the main reasons for this evolutionary success is the rapid development of an embryo along with a nourishing tissue, called the endosperm. Embryo ...

Compartmentalization and dynamics of Nuclear functions
ID: 210508
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-05-31
The eukaryotic genome is packaged into large-scale chromatin structures that occupy distinct domains in the nucleus and this organization is now seen as a key contributor to genome functions. Two key functions of the genome can take advantage of nuclear organization: regulate...

Genetic and Environmental Variation of Memory phases
ID: 209540
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2011-08-31
Memory (i.e. the ability to store and retrieve information) plays a crucial role in the development of an animal’s behavior within its lifespan and is often important for its survival and reproductive success. Memory is itself a product of evolution and the degree to which in...

Lattices in Computer Science
[PROJECT] LATTICE - Lattices in Computer Science
ID: 206978
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2012-08-31
A lattice is defined as the set of all integer combinations of $n$ linearly independent vectors in $\R^n$. These geometrical objects possess a rich combinatorial structure that has attracted the attention of great mathematicians over the last two centuries. Lattices have an i...

Adaptation of Virus Genomes to Insect Immunity
ID: 206205
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-06-30
How ecology shapes genomes is a key question to be addressed in the postgenomic era. A leading theory states that species evolve as groups of genomes adapting to particular ecological niches. Thus, shifts to a new ecological niche should be connected to genome divergence, and...
