Spinal cord rehabilitation enhanced by the use of data-driven and dynamic cortical state models
ID: 331602
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2015-04-30
Neuromotor disease and insult negatively affect the lives of millions of people worldwide. In some cases, such as severe spinal cord injury (SCI), a completely functional central nervous system is abruptly disconnected from the completely functional body. Currently, there is ...

Systematic Isolation of Glycosyltransferases in Drosophila melanogaster Using The Toxicity of Fungal Lectins
ID: 300907
Start date: 2012-03-01, End date: 2014-02-28
Glycosyltransferases catalyze the transfer of a sugar from a glycosyl donor to an acceptor substrate and though this action are responsible for the synthesis of the vast array of glycan modifications found in nature. Identifying genes that encode proteins with glycosyltransfe...

Functional characterization of neuroactive toxins using an engineered bacterial type-III secretion system
ID: 300718
Start date: 2012-07-01, End date: 2014-06-30
Toxins occur in a broad diversity in nature and are produced by a wide array of organisms, including spiders, snails, or plants. Conotoxins are a class of toxins that are synthesized in the venom duct of the marine cone snail, genus Conus. The venom of each Conus species is c...

Multiple approaches for multimode quantum memories
ID: 300632
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2015-10-31
Quantum communication aims to transmit a quantum state (e.g. entangled states) between two distant locations. Unfortunately, the losses during the transmission in optical fiber or in free space are detrimental to the entanglement and make direct practical implementation of lo...

Mechanisms underlying epigenetic regulation by small non-coding RNAs
ID: 300094
For a long time it has been accepted that a big part of the genome consisted of the so-called ''junk'' DNA without functional importance. Through the ENCODE project it has been evident that the vast majority of this DNA is in fact transcribed into RNA, producing a huge number...

The Role of SMAD4-mediated BMP Signal Transduction in Determination of Digit Identities, Initiation of Chondrogenesis, and Skeletal Development
ID: 273304
Start date: 2011-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
The limb bud is a system of paradigmatic value to analyze vertebrate organogenesis. One major question is when and how the chondrogenic progenitors of the limb skeleton are determined. Recent studies suggest that digit identities are only fixed during advanced autopod develop...
