Twentysix groundbreaking research projects launched via the Open Competition Domain Science – XS

Pers / media: Activiteiten met een maatschappelijk belangPopular

Description

The NWO Domain Board Science has awarded 26 applications in the Open Competition Domain Science - XS. Each project could apply for a maximum of 50.000 euros. The themes vary from research into CO2 conversion, virus evolution and lithium-ion batteries.

The XS category emphatically strives to encourage curiosity-driven and bold research involving a relatively quick analysis of a promising idea. The next Open Competition Domain Science – XS deadline is on 10 May 2022, 14:00:00 CEST. More information is available on the website.

High-throughput identification of bacterial RNA chaperone proteins
dr. D. Incarnato (University of Groningen)
RNA is a key molecule in most cellular processes. Many RNA’s functions are mediated by its ability to form intricate structures, a process known as RNA folding. A group of proteins called RNA chaperones has been proposed to assist the RNA in this process. By studying how the loss of these proteins affects the structure of the RNA inside bacterial cells we aim to understand the rules governing RNA folding. As RNA folding regulates protein production, by focusing on RNAs involved in cell growth and survival we hope to identify new targets for the development of more effective antibacterial drugs.
