Research in the deep
One of UiB's Norwegian Centres of Excellence, the Centre for Geobiology in Bergen’s research focusses on extreme environments of the deep seafloor, the deep biosphere and remnants of ancient crust. The Centre integrates geologists, geochemists, microbiologists and molecular biologists to study life in extreme environments, early Earth and the roots of life.
The Centre is a hub for international research and researcher training. CGB undertakes interdisciplinary studies to generate new, fundamental knowledge about the interactions between the geo- and bio-spheres.
