Investigating the joint role of balancing and positive selection in mating systems evolution
ID: 622936
Start date: 2014-07-01, End date: 2017-06-30
Determining the evolutionary causes of sexual reproduction remains one of the biggest open questions in biology. Investigations of facultative sexuals can shed substantial insight on this subject due to the span of mating systems exhibited, ranging from outcrossing to asexual...

Cone snail toxins as therapeutic agents: Decoding biological mechanisms of conotoxin folding
ID: 330486
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2017-03-31
Predatory marine cone snails use extraordinarily complex venoms to capture prey. Most of the ~500,000 biologically active venom components are small, disulfide-rich peptides called conotoxins. They target receptors and ion channels of the nervous system with remarkable potenc...

EULA NETWORK IN CERAMIC MATERIALS WITH ENVIRONMENTAL AND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
ID: 295197
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Commercial use of advanced ceramics is limited by the complexity and high costs of implementation; skepticism about the long-term stability and consistency of material properties, coupled with lack of industry-wide standardization, high cost of components and absence of perfo...

Analysing the Impact of Global Climate Change on Ecosystems: A Cross-Scale Metatranscriptomics Approach
ID: 327697
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2016-02-29
Some of the most pressing problems facing mankind today relate to the consequences of global climate change (GCC). To date, most studies of GCC have focused on plants and animals while downplaying the role of microorganisms. However, microbial activity in the soil is responsi...

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...

Characterization of epithelial wound repair at the molecular level for revealing epithelial aspects of inflammatory bowel disease
ID: 625238
Start date: 2015-02-26, End date: 2017-06-01
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) affects millions of people worldwide. The incidence and the prevalence are rising every year. This chronic disease not only decreases patient's quality of life but also creates a huge socio-economic burden for society. For establishment of a c...

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...
