Ploidy change as a rapid mechanism of adaptation
ID: 340087
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2019-12-31
Fungi are particularly challenging pathogens; because they and their human hosts are eukaryotes. We will study how new traits such as drugR arise rapidly using Candida albicans, the most prevalent fungal pathogen of humans. The work explores the ground-breaking concept that a...

MODelling vegetation response to EXTREMe Events
ID: 613817
Start date: 2013-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
The continuous supply of services provided by agricultural systems is increasingly threatened by climate change in association with an estimated increase in the frequency of extreme weather events such as droughts, heat waves or heavy precipitation events. MODEXTREME has the ...

Pathogenesis and transmission of influenza virus in pigs
ID: 258084
Start date: 2010-07-01, End date: 2014-12-31
FLUPIG aims at a better understanding of the role of pigs in influenza pandemics. Pandemic influenza viruses come from wild birds, but they must adapt to efficient replication and transmission in humans to cause a pandemic. Pigs are considered important intermediate hosts in ...

Role of ncRNAs in Chromatin and Transcription
ID: 268569
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2017-04-30
The human genome is highly transcribed, with over 90% of sequences contributing to the production of RNA. The function of the vast majority of these RNAs is unknown. Evidence over many years has revealed that transcription factors and chromatin regulators are associated with ...

Evolutionary reconstruction of viral spread in time and space
ID: 260864
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2015-09-30
To identify the causal mechanisms leading to disease emergence, endemic maintenance and epidemic expansion, epidemiologists would benefit tremendously from a full characterization of pathogen spread in space and time. The extensive sequencing efforts for the ongoing swine-ori...

Sustainable Solutions for Small Ruminants
ID: 245140
Start date: 2010-05-01, End date: 2013-10-31
The 3SR project (Sustainable Solutions for Small Ruminants) brings together a strong and unique international consortium of 14 partners that will mine genomic information of sheep and goats to deliver a step-change in our understanding of the genetic basis of traits underlyin...

Coordination of resources for conditional expression of mutated mouse alleles
ID: 223487
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2011-10-31
This proposal describes CREATE, an internationally based Coordination Action directly addressing a large scale data gathering activity for systematic conditional mouse mutagenesis. Advances in the sophisticated manipulation of the mouse genome has established the mouse as the...
