Synthetic archaeal proteoliposomes
Despite a 40-year tradition of molecular research in Eukarya, most of their cellular processes remain mysterious for science. The cross-border research project is based on the hypothesis that Eukarya emerged from within Archaea. The goal is to provide new explanations for vesicle generation from Archaea to Eukarya. To this end, expertise from molecular biology and geochemistry will be combined. The project is led by the University of Freiburg and carried out in cooperation with the University of Strasbourg. Eucor – The European Campus supports the consortium with the Seed Money funding instrument in the “Research and Innovation” funding line.
