Two rare but usually fatal diseases are caused by a failure at different levels of the multistep biosynthetic generation of the three human molybdenum dependent enzymes involved in metabolic processes. In contrast to the more general Moco deficiency (MocoD) affecting all three enzymes, isolated sulfite oxidase deficiency (iSOD) cannot be treated yet. The proposed project is primarily aimed at synt ...

Mediterranean river basins are characterized by high (often extreme) temporal variability in precipitation, and hence discharge. Mediterranean countries are considered sensitive to so-called global change, considered as the combination of climate and land use changes. All panels on climate evolution predict future scenarios of increasing frequency and magnitude of floods and extended droughts in t ...

How important are environmental barriers between species and populations now and in the future? Currently, environmental barriers to movement across habitats that have persisted since the last ice age are breaking down, resulting in gene flow among previously isolated populations and even hybridization between species. What are the consequences of this gene flow? Local genetic adaptations to the s ...

Anatolian pLateau climatE and Tectonic hazards (ALErT)

Start date: 01 Oct 2013, End date: 30 Sep 2017,

ALErT: Anatolian pLateau climatE and Tectonic hazards, is a virtual campus of 10 European academic and 5 industry partners in the fields of applied Earth sciences, natural hazard monitoring, and knowledge transfer. Our research focus is on the tectonic and climatic boundary conditions along the densely populated margins of the Central Anatolian Plateau, Turkey and associated natural hazards. Due t ...

Investigating Tectonism-Erosion-Climate-Couplings (ITECC)

Start date: 01 Jan 2013, End date: 30 Jun 2017,

Tectonics and climate are interdependent. The tectonics of orogens are moderated by climate through erosion. Exposure of rock by tectonics or erosion is critical to the feedback which governs changes in global climate, whilst topography influences rainfall. The principle objective of iTECC is to use the Himalaya as a natural laboratory to train young scientists in understanding such coupled proces ...

Probing DNA Radiation Damage by DNA Nanotechnology (NANORADAM)

Start date: 01 Apr 2013, End date: 31 Mar 2017,

In cancer radiation therapy predetermined doses of high-energy radiation are administered to reduce tumours. More than 60 % of the patients diagnosed with cancer are treated with radiation therapy. A detailed understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of DNA radiation damage is of utmost importance with respect to the question of how the damage can be increased by therapeutics used in radiation t ...

"The change from reproduction by outbreeding to selfing is one of the most frequent evolutionary transitions in plants. This transition is generally accompanied by changes in flower morphology and function, termed the selfing syndrome, including a reduction in flower size and a more closed flower structure. While the loss of self-incompatibility is relatively well understood, little is known about ...

Higher plants and animals establish elaborate body plans with one end of the organism being different from another. Polar organisation is also of fundamental importance at the single-cell level, because mutations affecting cell polarity may cause severe body deformations. Hence, cell polarity is a central theme of biological research and much progress has been made towards our understanding of cel ...

Syllables and the Timing of Speech (STIMOS)

Start date: 01 Oct 2010, End date: 30 Nov 2016,

"Project summary: The project develops an integrative symbolic-dynamical framework for gaining a fundamental understanding of the relation between qualitative spoken language form, also known as phonological form, and the continuous speech movements and acoustics in which this form is realized. The empirical domain is syllables. The syllable is a central unit of spoken language, mediating between ...

The Plant Cell Wall Training Consortium (WallTraC)

Start date: 01 Jun 2011, End date: 29 Feb 2016,

"Plant cell walls constitute a highly complex and dynamic entity of extreme importance in plant growth and development. Growing cell walls can be considered as ""fibre composites"", where cellulose microfibrils are embedded in a matrix of complex glycans. It is becoming increasingly apparent (i) that cell wall glycans are diverse in structural terms, (ii) that these structures are developmentally ...
