Variability in the mutation rate of RNA viruses (VIRMUT)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2016,

"RNA viruses are the fastest evolving entities in nature. Such rapid evolution is explained by their mutation rates, which are orders of magnitude higher than those of DNA organisms. The error-prone replication of RNA viruses also has public-health implications related to pathogenesis, antiviral research, or viral emergence. However, current mutation rate estimates vary by more than 100-fold acros ...

The interest in bottom-up fabricated semiconductor nanowires (NWs) has been growing steadily in the last years due to their potential as basic building blocks of nanoscale devices and circuits. Investigations performed so far try to exploit three unique properties of NWs: First, they are the smallest dimension structures that allow optical guiding and electrical contacting simultaneously. Second, ...

Next Generation Hybrid Interfaces for Spintronic Applications (HINTS)

Start date: Jun 1, 2011, End date: May 31, 2014,

The development of conceptually new materials following a “double beyond” trend, that is going “beyond CMOS” with “beyond silicon” materials, is one of the most challenging issues for the next generation of products for Information and Communication applications. Future devices for information processing able to increase the public wealth and occupation require a further material downscaling, toge ...

European Consortium for Microbial Resource Centres (EMbaRC)

Start date: Feb 1, 2009, End date: Sep 30, 2012,

EMbaRC will establish a self-sustainable community of European Microbial Resource Centres representing a large bio-diversity and offering a wide-range of not only bio-resources but also expert services. These services will enable the development of new partnerships with public institutes in the field of biodiversity and will facilitate revenue-generating partnerships with the economic sector (larg ...
