Studies of neurosecretion by remote control of exocytosis and endocytosis with ligt
ID: 210355
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
Optical switches are photoisomerizable compounds that allow to remotely controlling the activity of proteins, cells and entire organisms with light. These tools are revolutionizing research in biology with their high selectivity and spatiotemporal resolution. Here we propose ...

Study of the role of protein posttranslational modification by SUMO (Small Ubiquitin-like MOdifier) in abscisic acid signaling and stress responses in plants
ID: 205927
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2014-06-30
Eukaryotic protein function is regulated in vivo by diverse mechanisms such as protein turnover, regulation of protein activity, localization and protein-protein interactions. These mechanisms involve constitutive or reversible post-translational modifications of specific ami...

Genetic interaction networks: From C. elegans to human disease
ID: 202445
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-04-30
Most hereditary diseases in humans are genetically complex, resulting from combinations of mutations in multiple genes. However synthetic interactions between genes are very difficult to identify in population studies because of a lack of statistical power and we fundamentall...

GENETIC AND GENOMIC STUDY OF CELL COMPETITION IN DROSOPHILA
ID: 200130
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
During initial stages a cell accumulating tumor-promoting mutations is usually surrounded by normal cells. Current cancer models do not incorporate this transition from a single cell to a field of cells, although it is probably critical, since the behavior of an individual tu...

Mixed-Matrix Interfaces for Enhanced Fine Chemicals Downstream Processing and Monitoring
ID: 209842
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2014-07-31
In the production of fine chemicals the downstream processing may amount up to 75 % of the total manufacturing costs, particularly when the product is aimed at nutritional or therapeutic use which demands a maximum purity. Current downstream processing strategies can face lim...

A comparative genomic analysis into the origin of metazoan multicellularity
ID: 206883
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
The emergence of multicellular organisms from single-celled ancestors is one of the most profound evolutionary steps in life’s history. However, and despite its importance, little is known about this pivotal evolutionary event. Interestingly, the emergence of multicellular or...

Genome Maintenance in the Context of Chromatin
ID: 210520
Start date: 2008-12-01, End date: 2013-11-30
With the availability of the essentially complete sequence of the human genome, as well as a rapid development of massive sequencing techniques, the research efforts to understand genetics and disease from a cis standpoint will soon reach an endpoint. However, our emerging kn...

Percolating Entanglement and Quantum Information Resources through Quantum Networks
ID: 209267
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2013-12-31
Quantum communication networks consist of several nodes that are connected by quantum channels. By exchanging quantum particles, the nodes share quantum correlations, also know as entanglement. Essential for the future development of quantum communication is to understand the...

High-throughput integrated photonic lab-on-a-DVD platforms
ID: 209243
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-09-30
The main aim of the proposed research line is to develop high-throughput highly sensitive photonic lab-a-DVD platforms for multiple parallel analysis with an extremely high degree of integration. The already existing high-throughput platforms only use the CD platform as a sub...

The Intellectual and Material Legacies of Late Medieval Sephardic Judaism: An Interdisciplinary Approach
ID: 209044
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2012-08-31
From the 13th to the 15th centuries, the Jews of the Iberian Peninsula (Sepharad) lived side by side with Christians and Muslims. Although persistent tensions existed between these three groups, their members also participated in a common artistic, intellectual and scientific...
