The evolution of barriers to gene exchange (BARRIERS)

Start date: 01 Sep 2016, End date: 31 Aug 2021,

Speciation is a central process in evolution that involves the origin of barriers to gene flow between populations. Species are typically isolated by several barriers and assembly of multiple barriers separating the same populations seems to be critical to the evolution of strong reproductive isolation. Barriers resulting from direct selection can become coincident through a process of coupling wh ...

indoor small-cell Networks with 3D MIMO Array Antennas (is3DMIMO)

Start date: 01 Jan 2017, End date: 31 Dec 2020,

It is predicted that wireless network traffic will increase 1000 times in the next decade. The exponential traffic growth is not uniform across geographical areas and mainly takes place in indoor hot spots. Hence, high capacity indoor venues represent the biggest network capacity increase challenge.The recently emerged 3D MIMO technology provides a promising dimension to provide extra capacity gai ...

Fracture in heterogeneous, (partially) fluid-saturated porous media is a multi-scale problem with moving internal boundaries, characterised by a high degree of complexity and uncertainty. Nevertheless, in spite of an abundance of research on fracture in solid materials, there is relatively little work on fluid-saturated porous materials. Herein, a robust, flexible simulation technology will be dev ...

How elephants grow old (Elephant Project)

Start date: 01 Jan 2016, End date: 31 Dec 2020,

The ageing population structure of most European countries has major health, economic and social consequences that lead to a need to better understand both the evolutionary limitations of deferring ageing, as well as the mechanisms involved in growing old. Ageing involves reduced fertility, mobility and ability to combat disease, but some individuals cope with growing old better than others. Impro ...

Evolutionary origins of complex ecological adaptations (ComplEvol)

Start date: 01 Jun 2015, End date: 31 May 2020,

During evolution, organisms adapt to diverse environmental conditions by evolving new morphological and/or biochemical traits, some of which are of impressive complexity. This is for example the case of eyes, wings or complex biochemical pathways, which all involve multiple components. The evolution of such complex traits has always intrigued evolutionary biologists, including Charles Darwin, and ...
