The Coevolution of Life and Arsenic in Precambrian Oceans
ID: 336092
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2018-08-31
The ubiquity of arsenic resistant genes across all of life’s variety suggests a close intimacy between arsenic biogeochemistry and evolution, over geological time scales. However, the behaviour of arsenic in past environments where life originated and its impact on our evolut...

Coordination by Evaluations and Valuations:
Market Logic Inside and Outside the Economy
ID: 263699
Start date: 2011-03-01, End date: 2016-02-29
This project studies evaluation and valuation as ways of coordinating actors and resources. Valuation is the ascribing of value to people, organizations, things and events given that there is no standard of value. Evaluation is judging according to an already existing value-s...

Mapping canine genes and pathways to leverage personalized treatment options
ID: 310203
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2017-11-30
The domestic dog encompasses hundreds of genetically isolated breeds, many of which show an increased risk for certain diseases. With the canine genome sequence, an understanding of the haplotype structure and availability of disease gene mapping tools, we are now in a unique...

Single Molecule Investigations in Living E. coli
ID: 616047
Start date: 2014-04-01, End date: 2019-03-31
The overall ambition is to make intracellular measurements that bridge the gap between quantitative physical models and biological observations, in order to identify and resolve inconsistencies in our current understanding of life at the molecular level. We are particularly i...

Socio-spatial inequality, deprived neighbourhoods, and neighbourhood effects
ID: 615159
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2019-07-31
The objective of DEPRIVEDHOODS is to come to a better understanding of the relationship between socio-economic inequality, poverty and neighbourhoods. The spatial concentration of poverty within cities is of great concern to national governments, partly based on a belief in n...

Electron Spectroscopy using Ultra Brilliant X-rays - a program for the advancement of state-of-the-art instrumentation and science
ID: 321319
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-01-31
The progress of materials science depends critically on the access to advanced characterization methods. During the last decades there has been an almost revolutionary development of modern X-ray based tools. We are today at a turning point in the development of synchrotron r...

Following the Genomic Footprints of Early Europeans
ID: 311413
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Two of greatest challenges of the post-genomic era are to (i) develop a detailed understanding of the heritable variation in the human genome, and to (ii) determine which key events in human evolutionary history that are responsible for patterns of genomic variation. The rece...

Solving an evolutionary jigsaw puzzle: A next-generation genomics approach to trace the origins of the eukaryotic cell
ID: 310039
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
The origin of the eukaryotic cell represents an enigmatic yet dramatically incomplete evolutionary puzzle. The few pieces of this puzzle that we have managed to identify thus far indicate that the eukaryotic cell most probably emerged via a fusion of an archaeal and an alphap...

Harnessing Proto-Enzymes for Novel Catalytic Functions
ID: 306474
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Enzymes are Nature’s catalysts, reducing the timescales of the chemical reactions that drive life from millions of years to seconds. There is also great scope for enzymes as biocatalysts outside the cell, from therapeutic and synthetic applications, to bioremediation and even...

Mechanisms of regulation of the blood-brain barrier; towards opening and closing the barrier on demand
ID: 294556
Start date: 2012-08-01, End date: 2017-07-31
In the bone-enclosed CNS, increased vascular permeability may cause life-threatening tissue swelling, and/or ischemia and inflammation which compromise tissue repair after trauma or stroke. The brain vasculature possesses several unique features collectively named the blood-b...
