Approaches to the bio-engineering of synthetic minimal cells
ID: 43359
Start date: 2007-03-01, End date: 2010-08-31
The main objective of the research is the construction of vesicle-based biochemical reactors as "minimal cells", defined as the cell constructs containing the minimal and sufficient number of components to be defined as alive, i.e. the concomitance of self-maintenance(metaboli...

Biological computation built on cell communication systems
ID: 43310
Start date: 2007-03-01, End date: 2011-02-28
Cell communication systems that form building blocks for biological computation devices have significant potential. They might be able within the human body to detect and respond to changes in the state of health and help to combat disease at an early stage or serve as sensors...

Engineering and control of biological systems: a new way to tackle complex diseases and biotechnological innovation
ID: 43379
Start date: 2007-02-01, End date: 2010-01-31
The aim of this proposal is to engineer a synthetic biological network for in vivo regular therapeutic delivery of insulin in a rhythm corresponding to normal nutrient uptake. To this end, we will engineer stable synthetic oscillator networks in yeast and mammalian systems abl...

Functional synthetic membranes for GPCR based sensing
ID: 43431
Start date: 2006-10-01, End date: 2009-09-30
Odorant receptors, members of the GPCR family, are an excellent example of natural superiority in binding specificity of small and hydrophobic molecules. But difficulties in expression, isolation and solubilisation of GPCRs hampered the assay development and further applicatio...
