DNA Damage Response and Repair Mechanisms

DNA repair is an Integrated Project subsidized by the 6th Framework Programme of the European Union. Its full name is 'DNA Damage Response and Repair Mechanisms'. The project is carried out by a Consortium of 15 scientific institutions: 14 academic and 1 industrial organization. The participants are located in The Netherlands, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Norway, Ireland, and France (see list of participants). The coordination is achieved by the Erasmus University Medical Centre in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The Integrated Project consists of the following Work Packages:

  • WP 1: Biochemistry and Structural Biology
  • WP2: Cell Biology
  • WP3: Generation and Analysis of Model Organisms
  • WP4: Systems Biology: Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics
  • WP5: From Models to Humans: Human DNA Repair Disorders
  • WP6: Dissemination, Communication and Training
  • WP7: Management

Our website contains information for scientists of the IP participants, as well as public science information for non-scientists, including a glossary (texts by Brona McVittie, Science Writer, London, UK). These pages include:
