Epigenetic regulation of economically important plant traits
ID: 316965
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
The mission of EpiTRAITS is to train young researchers in epigenetic gene regulation and flowering in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and the crop plants maize (Zea mays) and barley (Hordeum vulgare). Epigenetic gene regulation confers stability of gene expression patter...

Invasive predator control: response of American mink to eradication in relation to farm distribution
ID: 224814
Start date: 2008-04-01, End date: 2011-03-31
The objective of this project is to develop empirically testable predictions that can advance both shared predation theory and its application to biological control. The introduction of alien species into some areas has had a devastating impact on native biodiversity as they ...

Mechanisms of interactions in nano-scale of novel ionic lubricants with functional surfaces
ID: 216011
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2012-09-30
Recently, ionic liquids (IL) are employed as substitute for traditional solvents in catalysis, synthesis and electrochemistry. But little research work or actual applications have been published until now concerning the utilization of IL as lubricants. Generally, IL show no o...

High quality Material and intrinsic Properties of InN and indium rich Nitride Alloys - (The RAINBOW ITN)
ID: 213238
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2012-09-30
Indium nitride is a new narrow gap semiconductor (<0.7 eV), which alloys with GaN (3.5 eV) and AlN (6.2 eV) will allow the spectral range from telecom to hard UV wavelengths to be covered. This narrow band gap makes InN an exciting material from which to develop highest effic...
