The packaging of genetic information into chromatin regulates a wide range of vital processes that depend on direct access to the DNA template. Many chromatin-interacting complexes impact chromatin structure and their aberrant regulation or dysfunction has been implicated in various cancers and severe developmental disorders. A better understanding of the roles of chromatin-interacting complexes i ...

My proposal aims to take advantage of my ground-breaking finding that it is possible to mature, or activate, the [FeFe] hydrogenase enzyme (HydA) using synthetic mimics of its catalytic [2Fe] cofactor. (Berggren et al, Nature, 2013) We will now explore the chemistry and (bio-)technological potential of the enzyme using an interdisciplinary approach ranging from in vivo biochemical studies all the ...

The statement that individuals’ immediate social circumstances influence how they think and act in the political sphere is a truism. However, both theoretical and empirical considerations have often prevented political scientists from incorporating this logic into analyses of political behavior. In the CONPOL project we argue that it is necessary to return to the idea that politics follows a socia ...

Evolutionary Stability of Ubiquitous Root Symbiosis (HeteroDynamic)

Start date: Apr 1, 2016, End date: Mar 31, 2021,

Virtually all terrestrial plants depend on symbiotic interactions with fungi. Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi evolved over 450 million years ago, are obligate biotrophs and cannot complete their lifecycle without obtaining carbon from host roots. Mediating nutrient uptake and sequestering carbon in soil this symbiosis lie at the core of all terrestrial ecosystems. Plants on the other hand are fa ...

My recent discoveries show that mosaic loss of chromosome Y (LOY) in peripheral blood is associated with increased risks of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). These conditions are responsible for >50% of morbidity/mortality in aging men. More than 15% of men older than 70 show some degree of LOY and these men survive on average only half as long as men without LOY. Smoking is strongly associated ...

Environmental perturbations to lakes and reservoirs occur largely as episodic climatic events. These range from relatively short mixing events to storms and heat waves. While the driving events occur along a continuum of frequency and magnitude, however, their effect is generally longer lasting than the events themselves. In addition, the more extreme weather events are now becoming increasingly ...

Quantum field theory provides a theoretical framework to explain quantitatively natural phenomena as diverse as the fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background, superconductivity, and elementary particle interactions in colliders. Even if we use quantum field theories in different settings, their structure and dynamics are still largely mysterious. Weakly coupled systems can be studied perturb ...
