TRANSBIO SUDOE aims at promoting interdisciplinary and interregional research in the field of health & life sciences.
TRANSBIO SUDOE can provide mobility support (transport & accommodation) for scientists interested in setting up collaborative research projects.

Below the procedure to launch a collaborative project :
  1. Create a TRANSBIO account => registration
  2. When approved, enter the intranet via the Enter TRANSBIO SUDOE bottom bar
  3. Select in partner access => Post collaborative project
For all questions or further help, contact your regional local WP2 mini-cluster responsible..

Added value of the cooperation : Antibiotic resistance is a current major human health concern as it impairs the treatment of nasty bacterial infections that may ultimately lead to death. This cooperation will put together the expertise of Partner B in antibiotic resistant pathogens with the expertise of Partner A in RNA-seq, which is a cutting-edge technology that provides precise measurement of levels of transcripts and their isoforms than other methods. Through this partnership, we will be able to make advances in characterizing the pathogen’s transcriptome.

Summary of the proposal : Pathogens with high impact in human health will be studied regarding their transcription profile by means of RNA-seq methodology under the action of selected antimicrobial drugs. 

The proposal includes two trips to Valencia to evaluate the conditions offered by the Genomic Technological Platform of Valencia and a second trip to use this platform for performing the experiments. These visits will lay the ground to long term collaboration between the groups of Lígia Saraiva and Joaquin Dopazo. Furthermore, will allow accessing the Genomic Technological Platform of Valencia for the deep sequencing studies which are unavailable in Lisbon to the Portuguese partner.

This project will allow acquiring data on the molecular mechanisms underlying the action of a new type of drug with potential to eradicate multi-antibiotic resistant pathogens with clinical relevance.
