Selected Topics in Evolutionary Biology (STEB)

2017-05-15 – 2018-07-31

Selective Barriers to Horizontal Gene Transfer (EVOLHGT)

2015-06-01 – 2016-09-30
Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) is a form of genic inheritance that occurs between individuals in a population or between species rather than from parent to offspring. HGT is most prevalent in bacteria...

Self-Organization of the Bacterial Cell (SELFORGANICEL)

2016-04-01 – 2021-03-31
One of the most remarkable features of biological systems is their ability to self-organize in space and time. Even a relatively simple cell like the bacterium Escherichia coli has a precisely regulat...

Sensitivity to higher-order statistics in natural scenes

2013-09-01 – 2017-08-31
Visual processing and object recognition are among the most difficult problems facing computer vision today, yet these are also the tasks at which our brain excels without any conscious effort. What a...

Sex chromosome evolution under male- and female- heterogamety

2016-01-01 – 2018-12-31
In humans, a pair of sex chromosomes, the X and the Y, is responsible for generating males (which carry one X and one Y) and females (which carry two X-chromosomes). Understanding where these sex-chro...

Sex chromosomes and species barriers

2018-06-01 – 2020-05-31

Soft-bodied intelligence for Manipulation (SoMa)

2015-05-01 – 2019-04-30
The main obstacle to a wide-spread adoption of advanced manipulation systems in industry is their complexity, fragility, lack of strength, and difficulty of use. This project describes a path of disru...

Stromal Cell-immune Cell Interactions in Health and Disease (STROMA)

2012-01-01 – 2015-12-31
STROMA is an Initial Training Network promoting the study of stromal cell – immune system interactions during stroma development and function in health and disease. In STROMA we have bought together w...
