Significance for science
The results of this project are the protocols that will enable further more detailed and multilevel experimental setups in study of immune signalling in an important crop plant potato. We have developed both the bioinformatics resources and the wetlab molecular biology protocols. Taken altogether this will allow scientific breakthrough in further studies but has also allowed for substantial scientific output within this project. An additional aspect of the proposed research is development of new technologies for unreavealing complex biological pathways. The methodological principles established within the project can be easily adapted to investigations of other biological systems, for example the ones important for interested industrial partners in pharmacy or biotech. The project partners have established a tight cooperation with many pharmaceutical and biotech companies (Lek, Krka, Bia, BiaSeparations, Omega, BioSistemika) in the fields of development of molecular biology methods and their implementation in the industrial environment. Therefore, the experimental approaches and data analysis workflows/pipelines developed within the project can be transferred to other applications.
Significance for the country
The project findings were disseminated to scientific community and promoted Slovenian research sector internationally. These were several publications in high ranking scientific journals and presentations on scientific meetings. Several PhD students and young postdocs were involved in the project and have progressed in their knowledge in molecular biology and bioinformatics. They will contribute to solid knowledge base that can be transferred to industry in either agriculture, biotechnology or pharmacy. Also, members of project group were involved in teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels and thus transferred the knowledge very efficiently to this target group.
