Multi-scale Star Formation Across Nascent Galaxies (MUSTANG)

Start date: 01 Apr 2017, End date: 31 Mar 2022,

One of the fundamental questions in modern astrophysics is how gas is converted into stars during galaxy formation, and how this may have changed with galactic environment and cosmic time. It is widely accepted that the unknown physics of star formation (SF) in molecular clouds and feedback from massive stars represent the main uncertainties in our understanding of galaxy formation. The key open q ...

Entanglement Generation in Universal Quantum Dynamics (EntangleGen)

Start date: 01 Oct 2016, End date: 30 Sep 2021,

A paradigm example of precise predictions in complex systems is the universal scaling of correlation functions close to phase transitions, with their associated critical exponents. The extension of this concept to time dependent problems has been studied in the classical regime as well as in the quantum regime. A clean experimental confirmation of this prediction in a quantum system as well as of ...

The constraints and dynamics set by nature have a deep and significant impact on economic fundamentals and the ability to successfully manage renewable resources. This can be taken into account to formulate effective policies. However, the causal pathway from the natural to the social environment and its feedback for sustainable resource use is often overlooked, not the least because preferences a ...

The role of RNA in centromere biology and genome integrity (cenRNA)

Start date: 01 Jul 2016, End date: 30 Jun 2021,

One of the most astonishing processes in the life of a cell is the division into two daughter cells. Such a highly organized process would presumably be regulated tightly by the underlying centromeric DNA sequence; however, the sites of chromosome attachment to the microtubule spindle are regulated by epigenetic mechanisms. The best-characterized epigenetic mark for centromeres is the histone H3-v ...

Mitigation of climate change is a key scientific and societal challenge and also a headline target of the EU2020 strategy. Strong reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are necessary to reach the global warming target agreed on at the 2015 United Nations Convention of Parties in Paris. Such emission reductions can only be achieved if sources are properly quantified and mitigation efforts are verif ...

Decoding the Lateral Expansion of Plant Stems (PLANTSTEMS)

Start date: 01 Sep 2015, End date: 31 Aug 2020,

In contrast to animals, in which tissue proliferation in adult individuals is often pathological and deleterious, plants have evolved an indefinite growth habit. A remarkable but under-investigated example is the thickening of plant stems and roots: It is a purely postembryonic growth process and the group of stem cells responsible – the cambium – is derived from and embedded in fully differentiat ...

NEUTRINOS and DARK MATTER (DM) are the most abundant and also the most elusive building-blocks of nature because of their tenuous couplings to the ordinary matter we are made of. Each particle has a mirror image with identical mass and opposite charge: its antiparticle. What is the essential nature of particles and antiparticles? This is a most fundamental open question in science. The laws of phy ...

A diverse variety of medical or lifestyle conditions lead to a progressive loss of muscle force by functionally impairing myofibril contractility and causing ultimately myofibril loss. Major underlying risk factors of chronic muscle force loss are ageing, inactive lifestyles, and unbalanced nutrition. Together, these factors are predicted to lead to an endemic incidence of muscle weakness both in ...

Ontogenetic transcriptome evolution in tetrapods (OntoTransEvol)

Start date: 01 Feb 2015, End date: 31 Jan 2020,

A central goal in evolutionary biology is to understand the molecular changes responsible for phenotypic differences between species, in particular those that have arisen among mammals. Phenotypic evolution is thought to be largely founded on developmental gene regulatory changes, which determine species-specific tissue morphologies and thus lay the foundation for their typical physiological prope ...

NEUTRINOS (Ns) and DARK MATTER (DM) are the most abundant particles in the universe. Their couplings to ordinary matter are so tenuous that they remained undiscovered -invisible- until very recently. N masses and DM constitute the first evidence ever of physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. The path to build the New Standard Model must confront the fundamental nature of the partic ...

Molecular Basis of Coral Symbiosis (ESYMBIOSIS)

"Coral reefs are the world's most diverse marine ecosystems and their existence depends upon a functional intracellular symbiosis between dinoflagellates (single-celled algae) and their coral host. Stresses, such as elevated seawater temperature, cause the obligate symbiosis to break down, a phenomenon known as coral “bleaching”. Incidences of coral bleaching worldwide are on the rise, linked to g ...
