  Study probes genetics and chimp populations

Scientists in Cameroon, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States have discovered that chimpanzee populations living in pretty close proximity are considerably more different genetically than are humans living on different continents. The study shows that genomics can play a key role in chimpanzee conservation. Presented in the journal PLoS Genetics, it was funded in part by the EUPRIM-NET ('European primate network: specialised infrastructures and procedures for biological and biomedical research') project, which clinched more than EUR 4.7 million under the Infrastructures Thematic area of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). EUPRIM-NET allowed in particular the scientists to access samples available at the partner research infrastructures.

  SIOS: towards an integrated Arctic Earth Observation System

The goal of SIOS is to establish an observational research infrastructure for the Arctic Earth System integrating studies of geophysical, chemical and biological processes from the research and monitoring platforms. The EU is funding the Preparatory Phase of this new infrastructure which is part of the ESFRI roadmap. The greatest achievement so far is the comprehensive participation in the initiative. By today, not only all countries with research stations and regular activities in Svalbard are involved as full or associated partners, but also all Arctic countries. Since the start of the project in 2010, two more international institutions have applied for and have been accepted as associated partners. SIOS will start operation in 2013.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
