Investigating the Nature of Bacterial Spores
[PROJECT] BACTERIAL SPORES - Investigating the Nature of Bacterial Spores
ID: 209130
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
When triggered by nutrient limitation, the Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis and its relatives enter a pathway of cellular differentiation culminating in the formation of a dormant cell type called a spore, the most resilient cell type known. Bacterial spores can surv...

Systems Analysis of Plant Metabolism through the Integration of Heterogeneous Data from Genetics, Informatics and Metabolomics
ID: 204575
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
"The term METABOLISM describes all the chemical reactions and interactions that take place in a biological system. The regulation of metabolic pathways is constantly tuned in order to suit the needs of development and fitness. The main goal of the proposed research is to unra...

Independence of Group Elements and Geometric Rigidity
ID: 203418
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-12-31
The proposed research contains two main directions in group theory and geometry: Independence of Group Elements and Geometric Rigidity. The first consists of problems related to the existence of free subgroups, uniform and effective ways of producing such, and analogous quest...

Physiological Interactions between Marine Cyanobacteria and their Viruses
ID: 203406
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
Viruses (phages) influence many aspects of microbial processes including the population dynamics, diversity and evolution of their hosts. Yet we know practically nothing about the physiological interactions between hosts and phages during infection even though it is the outco...

Time Dependent String Theories and Cosmology
ID: 203247
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2012-08-31
Great progress was made in recent years on two different fronts. Experimentally we have improved our understanding of cosmology to the level that we now have a standard model of cosmology. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this model is the realization that most of the ener...

Biophysical aspects of self-organization in actin-based cell motility
ID: 203077
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
Cell motility is a fascinating dynamic process crucial for a wide variety of biological phenomena including defense against injury or infection, embryogenesis and cancer metastasis. A spatially extended, self-organized, mechanochemical machine consisting of numerous actin pol...

Fundamental dynamical processes near massive black holes in galactic nuclei
ID: 202996
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
"I propose to combine analytical studies and simulations to explore fundamental open questions in the dynamics and statistical mechanics of stars near massive black holes. These directly affect key issues such as the rate of supply of single and binary stars to the black hole...

Expanding the horizons of magnetic resonance in sensitivity, imaging resolution, and availability
ID: 201665
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
"We propose to develop and implement advanced magnetic resonance detection and micro-imaging techniques that will benefit many biophysical, chemical, physical, and medical applications. Magnetic resonance (MR) is one of the most profound observation methods in science. MR inc...

Planets - The Solar System and Beyond
[PROJECT] PLANETARYSYSTEMS - Planets - The Solar System and Beyond
ID: 201627
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
The discovery of the first extra solar planet, merely twelve years ago, ushered an explosive growth in our knowledge of planetary systems. Extrasolar planets have been detected with ever-smaller masses and today Earth analogs orbiting other stars are on the discovery horizon!...

Interhemispheric stimulation promotes reading: two brains are better then one
ID: 200512
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2012-09-30
The ultimate goal of INSPIRE is to develop Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)-based and training protocols that will improve semantic skills and creative thinking of healthy and impaired individuals by manipulating the balance between the hemispheres while they process l...
