Sustainable Algae Biorefinery for Agriculture aNd Aquaculture (SABANA)

Start date: 01 Dec 2016, End date: 30 Nov 2020,

SABANA aims at developing a large-scale integrated microalgae-based biorefinery for the production of biostimulants, biopesticides and feed additives, in addition to biofertilizers and aquafeed, using only marine water and nutrients from wastewaters (sewage, centrate and pig manure). The objective is to achieve a zero-waste process at a demonstration scales up to 5 ha sustainable both environmenta ...

Eliciting Mucosal Immunity to Tuberculosis (EMI-TB)

Start date: 01 Jan 2015, End date: 31 Dec 2018,

Tuberculosis (TB) is a global health problem, killing 1.5 million of people every year. The only currently available vaccine, Mycobacterium bovis BCG, is effective against severe childhood forms, but it demonstrates a variable efficacy against the pulmonary form of TB in adults. Many of these adult TB cases result from the reactivation of an initially controlled, latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis ...

"Acquisition of rapid, high resolution photosynthesis (i.e. carbon fixation) rates is a major challenge in aquatic research. One way to measure primary productivity in situ at an unprecedented temporal and spatial resolution is by active fluorometry (mainly Fast Repetition Rate techniques). Implementation of this technique, however, requires that the electron transfer rates (ETRs) measured by FRR ...

Novel Biocatalysts for the Production of Glycosides (NOVOSIDES)

Start date: 01 Dec 2010, End date: 30 Nov 2014,

This project aims to develop novel biocatalysts for the production of glycosides (NOVOSIDES). Glycosylated compounds have a wide range of applications, but very few enzymes are able to glycosylate small organic molecules cost-efficiently at the industrial scale. Therefore, glycosylation reactions catalysed by transglycosidases, glycoside phosphorylases and glycoside hydrolases will be explored in ...

"Low input farming occurs under non-SPF (specific pathogen free) conditions. The European ban on in-feed antibiotics exposes the piglets to a higher microbial environmental pressure. The postnatal priming of piglets with a diverse microbiota may affect the development of the piglet’s host-defense and gut functionality. By reversal, the piglets developing host-defense may affect the development of ...

Dynamic information about biomolecular processes in living cells is important for fundamental understanding of cellular functions, which is one of the primary targets of molecular cell-biology with important applications to pharmacology. However fur further progress in this field, and this specifically for monitoring genomic processes, there is immense need for developing sensing and detection tec ...

Recent studies suggest that the microenvironment surrounding primary tumor cells can temporarily change tumor cell gene expression, resulting in suppressed cell proliferation and increased cell motility. This genetic program allows tumor cells to invade the surrounding tissue, metastasize to distant parts of the body and suppress apoptosis induced by changes in the environment. Once cells reach a ...

IBD: proteases offer new targets for drug discovery (IPODD)

Start date: 01 Jun 2008, End date: 31 May 2011,

"The inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) which comprise Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic relapsing and remitting inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. The frequency of these conditions has increased in recent decades, particularly in countries making the transition from developing to developed nation status. In western Europe, IBD now affects between 1/1000 and 5/10 ...
