Background- Thermophilic organisms are composed of both bacterial and archaeal species. The enzymes isolated from these species and from other extreme habitats are more robust to temperature, organic solvents and proteolysis. They often have unique substrate specificities and originate from novel metabolic pathways. Thermophiles as well as their stable enzymes (‘thermozymes’) are receiving increased attention for biotechnological applications.

The proposed project will establish thermophilic in ...

Cyanobacteria are the only prokaryotes performing oxygenic photosynthesis. Theyhad and have tremendous influence on the biogeochemical cycles on Earth. Recently,cyanobacteria are increasingly investigated as cell factories for a sustainableeconomy. Despite their global, environmental and rising economic importance, ourknowledge on the regulation of their primary metabolism is fragmented.Cyanobacteria switch between photoautotrophic and heterotrophic modes ofmetabolism during day/night cycles or ...

Sustainable co-production is the short form of the research project “Tobacco as sustainable production platform of the natural biopolymer cyanophycin as co-product to oil and protein”. It combines plant and industrial biotechnology to increase the value of commercially grown tobacco with products that can sustainably substitute fossil raw materials. We aim to establish a new economically feasible production system for the biopolymer cyanophycin (CGP) as a by-product of tobacco without relevant ...

The main idea of MIX-UP (MIXed plastics biodegradation and UPcycling using microbial communities) is to showcase a novel approach for plastic recycling and therefore addresses one of the greatest challenges of our time: the establishment of a circular (bio)-economy for plastics. The continuing demand for plastic products, the lack of appropriate recycling and the ubiquitous pollution of the environment with plastic waste pose a global challenge. An ambitious vision and considerable efforts are ...

Amino alcohol moieties are found in highly diverse classes of natural products that are of great importance due to their bioactivity, and they function as chiral building blocks for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. The chemical synthesis of stereoisomerically pure amino alcohols is difficult and typically requires uneconomical steps for protective group manipulations. Conventional syntheses in the chemical industry often use hazardous substances, consume large amounts of energy ...

Our world is changing fast! Key global trends are rapid urbanisation, growing and ageing populations, and increased prosperity. This results in depletion of natural and petrochemical resources and climate change, which affects the quality of the environment and people's lives. Therefore, developing a bio-based economy is key to sustain our planet in the long term. Raw materials will have to be recruited from renewable sources.

Industrial biotechnology is potentially a very powerful technology in ...

Most biological processes require energy and are tightly regulated. Energy is extracted from food supplies and eventually transformed into ATP, the universal energy carrier of the cell. These pathways consist of many reactions which involve NAD or NADP, small molecules which serve as intermediate energy transmitters. Vitamin B3 is essential for the synthesis of these nucleotides. Interestingly, the key molecules in energy transduction also have important roles in the regulation of all vital ...

nfdi4health aims to create the most comprehensive inventory of German epidemiological, public health and clinical trial data to date. It builds a centralised data catalogue with elaborate search functionalities, sophisticated data access management, and a data analysis toolbox, while respecting stringent requirements for privacy concerning personal health data. Standardisation services ensure a high degree of interoperability. Use cases covering prototypical study types and areas of research show ...

Here we share resources and best practices to develop a disease map for COVID-19. The project is progressing as a broad community-driven effort. We aim to establish a knowledge repository on virus-host interaction mechanisms specific to the SARS-CoV-2. The COVID-19 Disease Map is an assembly of molecular interaction diagrams established based on literature evidence.

The New Medicines for Trypanosomatidic Infections - NMTrypI project aimed at obtaining new candidate drugs against Trypanosomatidic infections with appropriate efficiency from the lead phase to the final preclinical phase that are more accessible to patients.

In the CoVIDD project, we aim at unravelling interactions of viral proteins with the cellular factors and the host pathways involved in SARS-CoV-2 infection by a combination of modern technologies, genomics, proteomics, structural biology, chemoinformatics and drug discovery. To effectively search for drugs that could modify viral replication we need to know what human proteins and viral proteins interact. Thus, a comprehensive virus-host protein interaction network will help us to identify the ...

Using standard systems biology methodologies a 14-compartment dynamic model was developed for the Corona virus epidemic. The model predicts that: (i) it will be impossible to limit lockdown intensity such that sufficient herd immunity develops for this epidemic to die down, (ii) the death toll from the SARS-CoV-2 virus decreases very strongly with increasing intensity of the lockdown, but (iii) the duration of the epidemic increases at first with that intensity and then decreases again, such that ...
