The Priority Programme “Nucleotide Second Messenger Signaling in Bacteria” (SPP 1879) represents the first systematic and comprehensive strategy ever to understand all fundamental aspects of nucleotide-based second messenger signaling in bacteria at the molecular level. Biosynthesis, turnover and functions of c-di-GMP, the “classics” cAMP and ppGpp, as well as “newcomers” such as c-di-AMP and others are being studied from molecular, cellular, physiological, systems-level and ecological perspectives. The programme is designed to run for six years. The present call invites proposals for the second three-year funding period.
- Proposals must be written in English and submitted to the DFG by 29 October 2018.
