FAPESP Week symposium discusses scientific cooperation between Brazil and the US

ins of diversity and distribution of flora and fauna in So Paulo State, all targeted toward public policy with impact on conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.

On the second day of FAPESP Week, Glaucia Souza, a researcher from USP's Chemistry Institute, will make a presentation about the FAPESP Research Program on Bioenergy (BIOEN) which boasts up to US$ 130 million in investments to integrate basic and applied research on sugarcane and other materials that can be used as sources of biofuel. One of BIOEN's 59 projects developed biokerosene in a laboratory to substitute the petroleum derived kerosene used in commercial aviation. Biofuel could be produced in different regions throughout Brazil with lower distribution costs and without royalties because in addition to raw materials, the conception, the projection and the construction of reactors and separators are national. The study also presents the development and innovation in the areas of chemical reaction and separation engineering, guaranteeing the purity of the product and its possible use in high altitudes.

In the genomics section during the presentation entitled "Noise or Symphony: how to make sense of transposable elements," Marie Anne Van Sluys of USP's Biosciences Institute will speak about the recent research results that confirmed the role of repetitive DNA sequences (elements of transposition) in the genome of plants. Depending on the location of these sequences, these genes that have no apparent biological function can result in the appearance of new species. Like an orchestra's execution of a musical score, these gene sequences, also called "selfish DNA" could play the role of each instrument in executing different musical arrangements.

During the session on Drugs and Vaccines to be held on the third day of FAPESP WEEK, Licio Veloso, of Unicamp, will overview the discovery of new medicines and therapies for treatment of obesity and related disturbances with the
