Vidi grant awarded to Dr. Martina Vijver

For her proposal "The added risk of size at the nano-bio interface: quantifying uptake, internal localization and partitioning of metal-based nanoparticles in aquatic organisms", Dr. Martina Vijver has been awarded a Vidi grant as part of NWO's Innovation Research Incentives scheme.

Unfolding the principles of genome folding and dynamics in bacteria.

All organisms must organize their DNA within the confines of the cell. This is achieved by a combination of “passive” factors (e.g. cell size and shape) and “active” processes (e.g. DNA folding proteins). While much is known about how DNA is organized in higher organisms, we still have little understanding of DNA folding in bacteria.
