The Collaborative Seismic Earth Model Project (CSEM)

Start date: 01 Jan 2017, End date: 31 Dec 2021,

Seismic tomography images of the Earth's interior are key to the characterisation of earthquakes, natural resource exploration, seismic risk assessment, tsunami warning, and studies of geodynamic processes. While tomography has drawn a fascinating picture of our planet, today's individual researchers can exploit only a fraction of the rapidly expanding seismic data volume. Applications relying on ...

Multi-scale model of bacterial cell-cell interactions (T6S)

Start date: 01 Jan 2017, End date: 31 Dec 2021,

Transporting selected proteins across the cell envelope in a controlled manner is a fundamental property of all cell types. For bacteria, secretion systems play a central role in the translocation of effectors that mediate interactions with other cells. The bacterial Type VI Secretion (T6S) system is one of the most widespread secretion systems and, in a cell-cell contact-dependent fashion, it inj ...
