DFG establishes 10 new research units
Date:2/17/2010

Scientific Research and Higher Education of Ensenada/Mexico; the Mexican projects are being funded by the DFG partner organisation CONACYT.

Four further institutions are involved in the life sciences: the Research Unit "Crop Sequence and Nutrient Acquisition from the Subsoil" (spokesperson: Professor Ulrich Kpke, University of Bonn) will be using the most modern soil-biological, soil-physical and plant-physiological methods to research ecologically and agronomically important nutrient suitability of plants from the subsoil and particularly the influence of crop rotation upon this process. The objective of the Research Unit "iBeetle: Functional Genomics of Insect Embryogenesis and Metamorphosis" (spokesperson: Dr. Gregor Bucher, University of Gttingen) is to provide better understanding of the evolution, developmental biology and physiology of insects. To achieve this, a genome-wide RNA interference screen will be used to identify the respective genes in red brown flour beetles.

The planned work of the Research Unit "Protein-based Photoswitches as Optogenetic Tools" (spokesperson: Professor Peter Hegemann, Humboldt University Berlin) is seen as having as a high relevance to application. It aims to research the mechanism of light-activated ion channels and enzymes in order to provide new tools for neuroscience and cell biology. The Research Unit "Sulfated Steroids in Reproduction" (spokesperson: Professor Martin Bergmann, University of Gieen) is investigating the question of whether and to what extent sulfated steroids can be transferred as highly active steroids to the active circulation or become independently active, a question of great interest in reproductive medicine.

Finally, nanotechnology will be covered by the Research Unit "Controlling the Electronic Structure of Semiconductor Nanoparticles by Doping and Hybrid Formation" (spokesperson: Professor Thomas Mller, Technical University of Berlin). This Research Unit aims to carry out
