A list of partners we collaborate with in our projects.

Swedlow Lab, Wellcome Trust Centre for Gene Regulation & Expression, University of Dundee, UK

Several strands of research as outlined below.

Mechanism of Mitotic Chromosome Condensation

Mitotic chromosome segregation requires proper chromosome assembly and the phosphorylation of a number of chromosomal proteins. The Aurora B protein kinase and its binding partners INCENP and survivin have a critical role in this process. We are using both biochemical and imaging based approaches to study the function and regulation of the Aurora B protein complex.

Dynamics of the Interphase Nucleus

The Centre for Systems Biology, University of Edinburgh, UK

The Centre for Systems Biology at Edinburgh is a Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (CISB) funded by BBSRC and EPSRC in 2006. CSBE's research goal is to develop broadly-applicable methods and large-scale infrastructure for modelling the temporal aspects of biological phenomena. A key emphasis will be to link diverse data and models tightly, through multiple iterations, ranging from static ab initio models to highly-constrained, kinetic models that cross multiple scales.

The Roslin Institute, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh, UK

The Roslin Institute undertakes top-class basic and translational science to tackle some of the most pressing issues in animal health and welfare, their implications for human health and for the role of animals in the food chain.

Umweltbundesamt GmbH, Environment Agency Austria

Expert authority of the Federal Government of Austria for environmental protection and environmental control. The Umweltbundesamt records, analyses and evaluates data on the state and development of the environment, including biodiversity. The work for the proposed project will be carried out by the department for Ecoystem Research, Monitoring and Data Policy in co-operation with others according to scientific and technical requirements.

We work with EAA in the context of the ENVRI project, working with Barbara Magagna and Herbert Schentz.

Universiteit van Amsterdam

The UvA is the largest university of the Netherlands and a core member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU). The Faculty of Science at the UvA embeds a concentration of e-Science development and application groups, benefitting from its central position in the Science Park Amsterdam. The park holds the main European Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), one of the SURFnet core locations including the optical network exchange NetherLight, the national supercomputer and grid center (SARA) and a number of Dutch Science Organisation institutes.
