Resolving the Nuts and Bolts of Gene Body Methylation
Company Name TEL AVIV UNIVERSITY
Funded By 38
Country Israel , Western Asia
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

DNA methylation, the covalent binding of a methyl group (CH3) to cytosine base, regulates the genome activity and plays a fundamental developmental role in eukaryotes. Its epigenetic characteristics of regulating transcription without changing the genetic code together with the ability to be transmitted through DNA replication allow organisms to memorize cellular events for many generations. DNA methylation is mostly known for its role in transcriptional silencing; however, its functional output is more complex and is influenced in part by its DNA context. Recent genomic studies, have found DNA methylation to be targeted inside sequences of actively transcribed genes, thus termed gene body methylation. Despite being an evolutionary conserved and a robust methylation pathway targeted to thousands of genes in animal and plant genomes, the function of gene body methylation is still poorly understood at both the molecular and functional level. Similar to the chicken and egg conundrum, because we do not know what gene body methylation does, therefore scientists could not apply its function to discover its regulators either. Gene body methylation is targeted to a very specific subset and subregions of genes, thus we strongly believe that specific factors exist and are missing simply because that no one has ever searched for them before. Hence, to make major breakthroughs in the field, our approach is to artificially generate gene-body-specific hypomethylated plants that together with customized genetic and biochemical systems will allow us to discover regulators and interpreters of gene body methylation. Using these unique genetic tools and novel molecular factors, we will be able to ultimately explore the particular biological roles of gene body methylation. These findings will fill the gap towards a full comprehension of the entire functional array of DNA methylation, and to its more precise exploitation in yielding better crops and in treating human diseases.

Signal Integration by Gene Regulatory Landscapes
Company Name UNIVERSITAT BASEL
Funded By 38
Country Switzerland , Western Europe
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

Identification of the molecular mechanisms by which gene regulatory landscapes integrate diverse signaling inputs into a robust and dynamic transcriptional output is key to a comprehensive mechanistic understanding of the systems that govern vertebrate organogenesis. We will tackle this by taking advantage of our in-depth knowledge of the self-regulatory signaling systems controlling vertebrate limb development. To capture the dynamics by which the major signaling pathways (BMP, SHH, WNT, FGF) interact to control gene expression, we will profile chromatin architecture, epigenetic marks and the interaction kinetics of transcriptional effectors with cis-regulatory modules (CRMs) during mouse limb bud development. First, we will focus on the Grem1 gene regulatory landscape, as this BMP antagonist is a key node in the system and its spatio-temporal expression is regulated by all four pathways. This analysis will capture the temporal activity of all CRMs in the Grem1 landscape and reveal the ones that are targets of one or several signaling pathways. The functional requirements of single and multiple CRMs with redundant functions will be assessed by gain- and loss-of-function genetics in mice. This analysis together with in silico simulations of the relevant interactions aims to reveal the underlying regulatory logic. Second, the genome-wide datasets will be used to analyse the gene regulatory landscapes of signals involved in epithelial-mesenchymal and auto-regulatory feedbacks. Third, the trans-cis regulatory alterations underlying the evolutionary diversifications that resulted in digit loss and reductions will be functionally studied by comparative analysis of mouse, bovine, pig and chicken limb buds. Finally, as aberrant Grem1 expression predisposes to various diseases and cancers, we will study the trans-cis regulatory alterations that affect the Grem1 landscape in a mouse model of SHH-induced cerebellar medulloblastomas, which depends on aberrant Grem1 expression.

A novel approach for sexing chicken embryos on day one before incubation - saving them from being hatched and disposed
Company Name EGGXYT LTD
Funded By 38
Country Israel , Western Asia
Project Value 3 Million
Project Detail

eggXYt makes it possible to count your chicken before they hatch - saving the lives of 7 billion layer chicks, saving the industry billions of Euros & adding 7 billion eggs to the global supply. Each year the Layer Chicken industry sends 14 billion fertile eggs to hatcheries, where they are incubated for 3 weeks & only after they are hatched, are they manually identified as male or female by human chicken sexers. This means that 50% of the eggs, the male chicks – which are useless for both poultry & layer industries – are immediately disposed of, wasting billions of Euros. This is a massive financial & ethical challenge. eggXYt’s CRISPR based proprietary technology revolutionizes the chicken industry. Using a biomarker on the male chromosome of a chicken embryo, the sex of the chick is detectable once the egg is laid, & more importantly before the chick hatches. Scanning the egg through the shell, eggXYt is saving billions on incubation & manual sexing costs: 7 billion male chicks will be saved from unnecessary incubation & immediate killing, & the male non incubated eggs could be repurposed to be used in the food, animal feed, pharma or cosmetic industries. The eggXYt layers lay ethical “male chick culling free eggs” – in total, eggXYt’s technology creates a €300 billion opportunity. eggXYt was successful in both scientific & business development, resulting in several global accolades & receiving funding from various sources. SMEi-1 (Grant Agreement 774906) was used for completing the feasibility study for this innovative project & confirming its viability as a significant business opportunity. The next objective is to create a market ready eggXYt version for commercial launch in strategic markets. Successful implementation of this SMEi-2 project should lead to achievement of annual net revenues of €20.5 million by end 2025 & the employment of 20 full-time staff.

Project Detail

CORRIDORS MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR THE RING OF GROWTH IN WEST AFRICA (WAGRI-CACAO) 1. TITLE: Project for the installation of Poultry Industrial Slaughterhouses in Ivory Coast (PAV-CI) 2. COUNTRIES OF INTERVENTION: CÔTE DIVOIRE 3. INTERVENTION AREA: Korhogo, Man, Daloa, Bondoukou, Songon, Anyama and Bouake 4. AREAS OF INTERVENTION: Agribusiness 5. Strategic focus of the management plan: 6.JUSTIFICATION OF THE PROJECT: In June 2012, the Ivorian Government adopted a Strategic Plan for the Revival of Poultry 2012-2021 (PSRA 2012-2021) with the overall objective of ensuring food sovereignty in poultry products. This plan aims to achieve, by 2020, a production of 60 000 tonnes of poultry meat and 1.678 billion units of consumption eggs against respectively 18 000 tonnes and 780 million units in 2012. In 2017, despite the lack of investment, the poultry industry has been able to reach the production of about 52,000 tons of meat. The current analysis of the issue of insufficient production reveals: (i) the marketing difficulties of products related to the large share of the informal circuit and the low pre-market transformation of products, (ii) inadequate sanitary and hygienic quality of poultry products; and (iii) insufficient investment in the Ivorian poultry sector. With regard to marketing difficulties, the absence of modern slaughterhouses that can accommodate any poultry from any poultry farmer on the territory maintains the sale of live poultry. This increases the time of rearing broilers, requires additional maintenance costs of livestock and affects the number of rotation and reduces the profits of producer and therefore the profitability of the farm. Indeed, the chicken being sold in live poultry unit, its price does not evolve according to its duration on the farm. In addition, the sale of live poultry does not guarantee a payment to the poultry farmer because the latter receives the money after the retailer has sold the order taking into account mortalities occurring during transport and on the market. In addition, the sale of live poultry on the markets poses a public health problem because of the proximity of live animals to consumers and vulnerable populations (children, pregnant women, elderly people, etc.), the lack of official sanitary and hygienic controls and product traceability. It should also be noted that deplorable sanitary and hygienic conditions in which slaughter and poultry packing operations take place in the markets. This situation increases the persistence of avian epizootics such as highly pathogenic influenza (HPAI). In Côte dIvoire, the epidemiological analysis of GAHP revealed a market prevalence of nearly 28% and the infection of all 13 communes of the District of Abidjan (DSV, FAO, June 2016) . Transformation into a modern slaughterhouse requires significant investment that allows for added value and improved competitiveness. Only two (2) operators have these units SIPRA (COQIVOIRE) and FOANI Services with a capacity of about 7,000 chickens / hour, or about 17.5 million chickens slaughtered. This represents 30% to 40% of the slaughter capacity installed in Côte dIvoire. The population of poultry farmers reached 2,200 in 2014 with herds ranging from 500 to 200,000 head and implementations reaching close to 40 million day-old meat chicks (PAPAN, IPRAVI, 2015). Moreover, the effective fight against avian influenza requires the closure of live poultry markets and the radical change in marketing channels. This option, which has become totally urgent, should focus on the total and systematic transformation of domestic production before sale to sellers and resellers and then to consumers. It has the advantage of ensuring a better protection of the professionals with regard to the disease and to guarantee the sanitary and hygienic safety of the products. It is within this framework that the Ministry of Animal and Fisheries Resources (MIRAH), through the Support Program for National Poultry Production (PAPAN), initiates the Poultry Slaughterhouses Project in Côte dIvoire ( PAV-CI) of which this document constitutes the project file. 7. MAJOR STAKEHOLDERS Project Manager: STATE / Ministry of Animal and Fisheries Resources (MIRAH) Project Management: Support Program for National Poultry Production (PAPAN) Beneficiaries: - modern and traditional poultry farmers; - traders of poultry products or chicken resellers; - industrial operators (hatters, growers and suppliers of inputs and livestock equipment, etc.); - consumers 8. STRATEGIC DIRECTIONS General Objective (Goal): The general objective of the PAV-CI is to contribute to the improvement of the commercialization of poultry products notably by the transformation of chickens into industrial slaughterhouses.
