Impact of virus infection on the host proteome
ID: 311339
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Pathogens exploit cellular resources for their own benefit and their propagation. Co-evolution of viruses and their hosts led to the establishment of very specific interactions between both partners. The balance between both, the viral attack and the cellular defense mechanis...

The Past, Present and Future of Neotropical Biodiversity
ID: 311024
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
The American tropics – the Neotropics – comprise more species than any other region on Earth, including thousands of species used as crops, medicines and crafts. Understanding the evolution of this biodiversity and predicting the effects of climate and habitat changes on spec...

Mapping canine genes and pathways to leverage personalized treatment options
ID: 310203
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2017-11-30
The domestic dog encompasses hundreds of genetically isolated breeds, many of which show an increased risk for certain diseases. With the canine genome sequence, an understanding of the haplotype structure and availability of disease gene mapping tools, we are now in a unique...

Keeping gene expression in check: eliciting the role of transcription in the maintenance of genome integrity
ID: 309612
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2018-10-31
Genomic integrity is essential for accurate gene expression and epigenetic inheritance. On the other hand, a prolonged transcriptional arrest can challenge genome stability, contributing to genetic and epigenetic defects and the mechanisms of ageing and disease. Here we aim t...

Investigating Hereditary Cancer Predisposition – a combined genomics approach
ID: 310018
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2019-04-30
Background: Hereditary cancer is an important cause of morbidity and mortality and over the last 20 years, the majority of highly penetrant risk alleles such as BRCA1, BRCA2 in breast cancer and APC, MLH1, MSH2 in colon cancer have been identified. However, there are many men...

Following the Genomic Footprints of Early Europeans
ID: 311413
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Two of greatest challenges of the post-genomic era are to (i) develop a detailed understanding of the heritable variation in the human genome, and to (ii) determine which key events in human evolutionary history that are responsible for patterns of genomic variation. The rece...

Solving an evolutionary jigsaw puzzle: A next-generation genomics approach to trace the origins of the eukaryotic cell
ID: 310039
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
The origin of the eukaryotic cell represents an enigmatic yet dramatically incomplete evolutionary puzzle. The few pieces of this puzzle that we have managed to identify thus far indicate that the eukaryotic cell most probably emerged via a fusion of an archaeal and an alphap...

Microbial opsins for mammalian vision: Optogenetics in the retina
ID: 309776
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-11-30
The retina – a thin sheet of neural tissue in the back of the eye – is a sophisticated image processor which analyzes the incoming light pattern through a set of separate spatio-temporal channels and relays this information to the brain. The loss of the visual sense due to re...

Protection against reactive oxygen species in neurodegeneration
ID: 311394
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-05-31
Oxidative stress (OS) is implicated in the pathogenesis of some of the most devastating neurological diseases. Therefore, identification of pathways that counteract oxidative damage may lead to therapeutic strategies applicable to a wide range of disorders. I have recently id...

Proliferation and Migration under External Constraints
ID: 311205
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-06-30
Cell proliferation lies at the heart of the threat posed by tumours. It involves cellular growth, division and migration. The tissue surrounding a tumor physically limits its proliferation, which implies that cells that are able to produce effective tumour growth, as well as ...
