Mechanisms of cell fusion in eukaryotes
[PROJECT] ELEGANSFUSION - Mechanisms of cell fusion in eukaryotes
ID: 268843
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2016-04-30
Membrane fusion is a universal process essential inside cells (endoplasmic) and between cells in fertilization and organ formation (exoplasmic). With the exception of SNARE-mediated endoplasmic fusion the proteins that mediate cellular fusion (fusogens) are unknown. Despite m...

Ploidy change as a rapid mechanism of adaptation
ID: 340087
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2019-12-31
Fungi are particularly challenging pathogens; because they and their human hosts are eukaryotes. We will study how new traits such as drugR arise rapidly using Candida albicans, the most prevalent fungal pathogen of humans. The work explores the ground-breaking concept that a...

Ultracold Quantum Matter
[PROJECT] UQUAM - Ultracold Quantum Matter
ID: 319278
Start date: 2013-07-01, End date: 2019-06-30
Quantum mechanics is the basis of our understanding of the microscopic world. It is also central to the collective behaviour of matter at low temperatures, leading to unique properties that defy our classical intuition. The comprehension of such ‘quantum matter’ and the abili...

Investigating Directed Information
[PROJECT] DIRECTEDINFO - Investigating Directed Information
ID: 337752
Start date: 2013-08-01, End date: 2019-07-31
This research investigates a new measure that arises in information theory called directed information. Recent advances, including our preliminary results, shows that directed information arises in communication as the maximum rate that can be transmitted reliably in channels...

Learning to read the code of large neural populations
ID: 311238
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-10-31
Information is represented and transmitted in the brain by the joint activity of large groups of neurons. Understanding how information is “written” in these population patterns, and how it is read and processed, is a fundamental question in neuroscience. Yet, because of the ...

Chromatin and transcription in ES cells: from single cells to genome wide views
ID: 281781
Start date: 2011-12-01, End date: 2016-11-30
How embryonic stem cells (ESCs) maintain their dual capacity to self-renew and to differentiate into all cell types is one of the fundamental questions in biology. Although this question remains largely open, there is growing evidence suggesting that chromatin plasticity is a...

Predicting Properties of Large Heterogeneous Systems with Optimally-Tuned Range-Separated Hybrid Functionals
ID: 278380
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
I propose to develop a broadly applicable, quantitatively reliable, computationally simple approach to the study of large heterogeneous systems, and to apply it to important problems in molecular and organic electronics and photovoltaics. This will be based on a radically dif...

Dynamics on homogeneous spaces, spectra and arithmetic
ID: 267259
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
We consider the dynamics of actions on homogeneous spaces of algebraic groups, We propose to tackle the central open problems in the area, including understanding actions of diagonal groups on homogeneous spaces without an entropy assumption, a related conjecture of Furstenbe...

Fracture and Friction: Rapid Dynamics of Material Failure
ID: 267256
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2016-11-30
FractFrict is a comprehensive study of the space-time dynamics that lead to the failure of both bulk materials and frictionally bound interfaces. In these systems, failure is precipitated by rapidly moving singular fields at the tips of propagating cracks or crack-like fronts...

Deep Packet Inspection to Next Generation Network Devices
ID: 259085
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
Deep packet inspection (DPI) lies at the core of contemporary Network Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems and Web Application Firewall. DPI aims to identify various malware (including spam and viruses), by inspecting both the header and the payload of each packet and compa...
