RealScore - Scanning of Real-World Sheet Music for a Digital Music Stand
ScorePad’s sheet music scanning service works for high quality input; to scale up business, it should work as well for smartphone pictures, used sheets etc. Project RealScore enhances the successful predecessor project by making deep learning adapt to unseen data through unsupervised learning.
Strategies to reduce food loss and valorize side streams in food industry: buildup of an industrial consortium
Computational literature-based natural product drug discovery
Natural products such as medicinal plants and extract mixtures have successfully supported the discovery of pharmaceuticals. Medically relevant products and their properties are often found through systematic analysis of the literature. In 1980s Swanson found hidden links between pieces of knowledge in the scientific literature by a manual ...
Silent pathway awakening to discover novel antibacterial compounds from actinomycetes
There is a tremendous need for novel antibiotics due to the global resistance crisis. Actinomycetes are the most important sources of secondary metabolites. They provide an enormous potential to discover novel antibiotics. Actinobacteria remain an underexploited reservoir of interesting products, especially regarding new compounds because genomic ...
Engineered bacteriophages for the control of E. coli O157
Bacteriophages (phages) represent a very promising alternative to antibiotics to combat infections caused by Shiga Toxin producing E. coli O157. In this research project, two different O157-specific bacteriophages will be genetically engineered to effectively control E. coli O157. In addition, a scalable setup for phage propagation in bioreactors ...
