Freiburg Initiative for Systems Biology – FRISYS WP2 miRNAs and WP3 Transcriptional networks

Description of the project:
Since January 2007 the Freiburg Initiative for Systems Biology is hosting one of the new FORSYS centres for Systems Biology. Several pro- and eukaryotic model organisms are targeted by the FRISYS research program. These organisms have been selected to cover phylogenetic key positions of the plant and animal realm like cyanobacteria, the moss Physcomitrelle patents, the angiosperm Arabidopsis thaliana, the invertebrate roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans and the vertebrate zebrafish (Danio rerio) and are complemented by work on mammalian cell and organ cultures. In this project, we work within the subprojects WP2 and WP3 on the impact of regulatory RNAs and study of the transcriptional regulatory networks which control growth and differentiation in these organisms.
