Adaptations of the ATP synthesis machinery in bacteria and archaea to conditions of extreme
energy limitation in the deep subsurface
ID: 629413
Start date: 2014-10-01, End date: 2017-02-10
Microbes in the deep sub-seafloor have recently been found to survive under unprecedented conditions of extreme energy limitation. I aim to identify microbes in these deep subsurface communities with central energy metabolism that is adapted to these conditions. A combination...

Long Life Bridges
ID: 286276
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2015-08-31
Bridges, like many Civil Engineering products, are designed quite conservatively. For older bridges, this conservatism is very expensive – there is a great difference between the cost of strengthening an existing bridge and not doing so. Very often it is possible to prove tha...

Appendicularian houses fate and role in carbon sedimentation  and nutrition of zooplankton
ID: 221696
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2010-05-31
Little is currently known about the mechanisms by which zooplankton could find and locate sinking particles in the marine pelagic environment. However this process is believe to be an important pathway in reducing the downward carbon flux in the ocean and could also be an imp...

Quantitative Genetics of Caste in Social Insects
[PROJECT] GENETICS OF CASTE - Quantitative Genetics of Caste in Social Insects
ID: 221123
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2010-08-31
The social insects are established model systems for the study of social evolution and are emerging model systems for studying the evolution of behaviour, aging, and complex social phenotypes. However, we know very little of the genetic basis of social insect phenotypes. This...
