MicroRNAs are a recently discovered group of factors that control cell behaviour. There are thousands of microRNAs, but specific ones control the behaviour of cartilage cells and have key roles in osteoarthritis. Changing the level of a single microRNA can alter osteoarthritis, but we know that several microRNAs change during disease. The group has identified four microRNAs which have key roles in cartilage. This programme seeks:

to show that these microRNAs have a role in osteoarthritis in the ...

The aim of the project is bioprospecting, isolation and characterization of novel secondary metabolites, produced by extremophilic microorganisms. The project is dedicated to a poorly investigated problem of antagonistic interactions between extremophilic microorganisms in their communities, namely, to the investigation of the ability of extremophiles to produce secondary metabolites with biocidic, cytotoxic and cytostatic activities. Working out this problem will fulfill an important applied ...

Despite the intensive use of agrochemicals, plant pathogens are responsible for huge yield losses worldwide. Understanding the interaction between plant and pathogens is crucial to ensure long lasting and environmentally friendly system of plant protection. Therefore research of the most important human food crops in combination with their pathogens is one of the highest priorities for sustainable agriculture.

The aim of the proposed research project is to bring new perspective into understanding ...

The Systems Biology Service Center of de.NBI (de.NBI-SysBio) provides bioinformatics support and a standards-based data management for systems biology projects, with focus on the provenance of experimental results and on the reproducibility of modeling experiments, as well as high-quality curated biochemical data to modelers and experimentalists. The node concentrates on two tools for the data management in life sciences research: SEEK, a catalogue for storage, registration and exchange of data ...

The project “Rational development of anti-cancer combinations” focuses on precision medicine for cancer by pursuing novel insight into cancer disease mechanisms, combinatorial drug treatment in order to enable selection of the best treatment for the individual patient. The aim is to develop and integrate computational, experimental and analytical approaches to predict and validate anti-cancer drug combinations and produce an integrated pipeline for rational screening of synergistic drugs and for ...

In the project “Crossover Research 2.0 – Well constructed Knowledge Commons” the domain of precision medicine is explored as a key visionary driver for developing the Knowledge Commons and the enabling of Systems Biology approaches to innovate healthcare. In particular, we seek to engage stakeholder concerns in investigating and establishing strategies for DrugLogics to contribute to the Knowledge Commons in an RRI mode.

Short-chain fatty-acids (SCFA) are produced from dietary fibres by the intestinal microbiota. They protect humans against obesity. The fate of SCFA and their impact on human fat metabolism is complex and dynamic. To optimally apply prebiotic (fibre) and probiotic (microbial) supplements, a better understanding of their mode of action is required. Our aim is to construct, infer, and analyse a dynamic, multiscale computational model predicting how dietary fibres affect the balance between fat intake ...

The MycoSynVac project AIMS at using cutting-edge synthetic biology methodologies to engineer Mycoplasma pneumoniae as a universal chassis for vaccination. Designing a universal Mycoplasma chassis that can be deployed as single- or multi-vaccine in a range of animal hosts. Annually, infections caused by Mycoplasma species in poultry, cows, and pigs result in multimillion Euro losses in the USA and Europe. There is no effective vaccination against many Mycoplasmas that infect pets, humans and farm ...

Public showcase and collection of training material

The workshop focuses on the publication, curation, retrieval, and usage of kinetic data from the reaction kinetics database SABIO-RK and on the use of data in modeling. There will be experience reports from scientists who successfully used experimental data to formulate or verify biological hypotheses with the computer, and you will experience how experimental data can be used with computational models.

Pesticides, plastics, cosmetics, electrical transformers and many other products contain Endocrine disruptors (EDCs). EDCs interfere with natural hormone functions and may cause the disease.

Microbial strains used in biotechnological industry need to produce their biotechnological products at high yield and at the same time they are desired to be robust to the intrinsic nutrient dynamics of large-scale bioreactors, most noticeably to transient limitations of carbon sources and oxygen. The engineering principles for robustness of metabolism to nutrient dynamics are however not yet well understood. The ROBUSTYEAST project aims to reveal these principles for microbial strain improvement ...

Escherichia coli is a well-established and the most widely used organism for the production of recombinant proteins (used in medical and industrial applications, as molecular biology reagents, etc.). Production of proteins is the most resource exhaustive process for the cells and therefore needs to be optimized to achieve maximal productivities. Natural environment of E. coli is much harsher compared to the near optimal growth conditions used in production processes. In order to survive cells ...
