The makeup of the modern horse: a history of the biological changes introduced by human management
ID: 681605
Start date: 2016-12-01, End date: 2021-11-30
The horse provided us with rapid transportation, an almost unrivaled secondary product that tremendously impacted the politico-economical trajectory of our societies, revolutionizing the circulation of ideas, people, languages, religions and communication. Horse chariotry and...

Characterizing Adaptation and Migration Events with Modern and Ancient Genomes
ID: 679330
Start date: 2016-08-01, End date: 2021-07-31
BACKGROUND Ancient DNA research has recently entered the genomics era. Performing“ancient population genomics” is now technically possible. Utilizing the temporal aspect of thisnew data, we can address fundamental evolutionary questions such as the amount of...

The Chemical Basis of RNA Epigenetics
ID: 741912
Start date: 2017-10-01, End date: 2022-09-30
The genetic code consists of a defined sequence of four canonical nucleosides and the sequence of these bases carries the blueprints of all life on earth. It is apparent that this sequence information alone is not sufficient to explain how a multicellular organism can...

Plant movements and mechano-perception: from biophysics to biomimetics
ID: 647384
Start date: 2015-07-01, End date: 2020-06-30
How to transport fluids, move solids or perceive mechanical signals without the equivalent of pumps, muscles or nerves? This ongoing challenge, which is relevant from microfluidics to robotics, has long been solved by plants. In this project, I wish to gather my...

Cognitive Ageing in Dogs
[PROJECT] EVOLOR - Cognitive Ageing in Dogs
ID: 680040
Start date: 2016-06-01, End date: 2021-05-31
The aim of this project is to understand the causal factors contributing to the cognitive decline during senescence and to develop sensitive and standardized behaviour tests for early detection in order to increase the welfare of affected species. With the rapidly ageing...

Mechanosensation and the circadian clock: a reciprocal analysis
ID: 648709
Start date: 2015-09-01, End date: 2020-08-31
All forms of life adjust themselves to the daily rhythms of their environments using endogenous oscillators collectively referred to as circadian clocks. Peripheral and central body clocks exist, which both require extrinsic information (e.g. light or temperature changes) to...

375 Million Years of the Diversification of Life on Land: Shifting the Paradigm?
ID: 637483
Start date: 2015-07-01, End date: 2020-06-30
Life on land today is spectacularly diverse, representing 75–95% of all species on Earth. However, it remains unclear how this extraordinary diversity has been acquired across deep geological time. This research project will address this major knowledge gap by reassessing...

Zinc finger gene therapy in the brain for treating Huntington's disease
ID: 641232
Start date: 2015-02-01, End date: 2016-07-31
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a lethal inherited neurodegenerative disorder which currently has no cure. Patients develop a devastating loss of muscle control and brain function, with symptoms typically developing at 35 - 45 years of age, although they can start much earlier...

GENEtic DiSsection of Innate Immune Sensing and Signalling
ID: 647858
Start date: 2015-10-01, End date: 2020-09-30
In vertebrates, a receptor-based, innate sensing machinery is used to detect the presence of microbederived molecules or the perturbation microbial infection causes within the host. In the context of viral infection, non-self nucleic acids are sensed by a set of intracellular...
