Describing Evolution with Theoretical, Empirical, and Computational Tools
ID: 308796
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-08-31
As evolutionary biologists we are of course motivated by the desire to gain further insight in to the evolution of natural populations. The main goals of this proposal are to (i) develop theory and methodology that will enable the identification of adaptively evolving genomic...

A novel two-step model for neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s disease
ID: 311194
Start date: 2013-06-01, End date: 2018-05-31
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder primarily caused by the progressive loss of dopaminergic (DA) neurons in the substantia nigra (SN). Despite the advances in gene discovery associated with PD, the knowledge of the PD pathogenesis is...

Memory B cell immunity in chronic viral infection
ID: 310962
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2018-08-31
This project aims for a quantum leap in the understudied area of memory B cell immunity to chronic viral infection. It provides i) a landscape analysis of primary and memory B cell responses to chronic viral challenge, ii) investigates receptor hypermutation of memory B cells...

Interplays between miRNAs and transcription factors in the determination and maintenance of cell identity
ID: 310510
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2015-10-31
"miRNAs are small RNAs that guide the RNA-induced silencing complex to mRNA targets, destabilizing them and inhibiting their translation. Much has been learned about their involvement in organism development and function, yet some striking puzzles remain. On the one hand it h...

ID: 311122
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
Life is fundamentally characterised by order, compartmentalisation and biochemical reactions, which occurs at the right place right time – within, on the surface and between cells. Only a proportion of life processes can be addressed with contemporary approaches like liquid e...

Consequences of helminth-bacterial interactions
ID: 310948
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-03-31
"Throughout evolution both intestinal helminths and commensal bacteria have inhabited our intestines. This ""ménage à trois"" situation is likely to have exerted a strong selective pressure on the development of our metabolic and immune systems. Such pressures remain in devel...

Identity and functions of polyphosphate polymerases in eukaryotes
ID: 310856
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
Inorganic polyphosphate (polyP), a linear polymer of dozens to thousands of orthophosphate units, has been found in virtually every pro- and eukaryotic cell. PolyP regulates blood clotting, inflammation and bone formation in humans, symbiotic interactions in plants and stress...

UV-B perception and signalling by the UVR8 photoreceptor
ID: 310539
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2017-11-30
Ultraviolet-B (UV-B) is a key environmental signal that is specifically perceived by plants and promotes UV acclimation and survival in sunlight. We discovered recently that the Arabidopsis UVR8 protein is absolutely required for UV-B acclimation and functions as the major UV...

Phase contrast X-ray imaging for medicine
ID: 310005
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
The goal of this grant is to introduce grating-based phase contrast enhanced X-ray imaging as a novel diagnostic tool in human medicine. We will first gain fundamental knowledge to master high-energy grating-based phase contrast imaging and develop novel radiological equipmen...

Photoreception in Drosophila larvae: Information coding in a simple neuronal circuit
ID: 309832
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
How does the neuronal network of the brain mediate its function? This fundamental question in biology is still a puzzle, despite decades of intensive work. A seemingly unsolvable obstacle when studying the brain is its enormous complexity. A powerful approach to understand ou...
