Frontiers in Attosecond X-ray Science: Imaging and Spectroscopy (AXSIS)

Start date: Aug 1, 2014, End date: Jul 31, 2020,

"X-ray crystallography yields atomic-resolution 3D images of the whole spectrum of molecules ranging from small inorganic clusters to large protein complexes constituting the macromolecular machinery of life. Life is not static, and many of the most important reactions in chemistry and biology are light induced and occur on ultrafast timescales. These have been studied with high time resolution pr ...

Classical Tamil can lay claim to being the oldest poetic tradition on the Indian sub-continent after Sanskrit. Its literature may have been committed to writing for the first time around the 6th century, with oral predecessors that reach back at least to the beginning of the Common Era. For a good thousand years, poetic anthologies of love and war and the theoretical treatises describing the poe ...

SYSTEMIC EFFECTS OF THE COMBINATION OF ABIOTIC STRESSES (SECA)

Start date: Mar 1, 2014, End date: Feb 28, 2018,

"Environmental stress is responsible for the majority of crop yield losses worldwide. Most of the global damage caused by abiotic stresses can be attributed to drought, salinity, high temperatures, and an insufficient supply with mineral nutrients. Farmers and breeders have been aware for a long time that a combination of stress factors is the normal situation plants have to cope with in natural e ...
