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...

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...

The Extragalactic Interstellar Medium - Measuring Dust Extinction using Gravitational Lensing
ID: 220049
Start date: 2008-10-18, End date: 2011-10-17
One of the most intriguing recent results in the physical sciences, has been the growing body of evidence that 70% of the energy content in the universe comes from an unknown energy field (‘dark energy’). One of the most promising methods for quantifying dark energy, is using...

Smart Controlled Environment Agriculture Systems
ID: 269240
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2015-05-31
Half of the European Union's land is farmed. This fact alone highlights the importance of farming for the EU's economy, employment, energy use and environment. In recent years several factors (climate change, unpredictably outside weather conditions, water shortage, energy cr...

Searching, Matching, Sorting, and Separating in the Labour Market: Costs, Structure and Consequences of Employment Adjustment in Dynamic Frictional Economies
ID: 255597
Start date: 2010-05-01, End date: 2013-04-30
This research seeks to provide answers to three interrelated crucial policy questions on the interdependency of labour and product markets, focusing on the costs, structure and consequences of employment adjustment costs. To this aim, I propose to extend the strong theoretica...

The post-copulatory interplay between females and ejaculates in social insects
ID: 254839
Start date: 2011-03-01, End date: 2015-05-06
The hymenopteran eusocial insects (ants, bees, wasps) not only have impressive colony lives, but also spectacular adaptations for the years-long storage of live sperm. Where human medicine requires cryotechnology to do this, the queens of honeybees and ants produce glandular ...

DNA sensor in polymer photonic crystal band-edge lasers with integrated nanochannels
ID: 254573
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2012-10-31
The proposed project will develop a polymer-based optofluidic lab-on-a-chip device to study the physical dynamics of label-free DNA molecules. DNA contains the complete genetic code of an organism, yet it is the interaction of DNA with other molecular species that determine h...
