Researcher Antonio Garcia-Moyano made a research visit to the Centre for Biocatalysis at the University of Exeter, United Kingdom, hosted by Professor Jennifer Littlechild. Prof. Littlechild leads a group of experts in biochemistry and structural biology.
New Marinforsk project, led by Ruth-Anne Sandaa (UiB) will explore the co-evolution of host resistance and virulence
Pau Ximeno, student from Barcelona University will be working with us on his bachelor thesis for the Degree in Biotechnology. He will be involved in different tasks related to the development of molecular tools for the expression of thermophilic proteins in Thermus thermophilus.However he will also test the production, purification and activity of proteins in other alternative expression hosts.
The dCod project has been gathered at Beitostølen for the annual winter workshop. Following the workshop, many of us stayed on for the winter meeting of Norsk selskap for Toksikologi og Farmakologi (NSFT), where Karina Dale received award for best presentation in toxicology.
Lanternfish stomachs can become an exciting MSc thesis, as Synne Myhre Sunde has shown in the thesis she defended in late December.

After finishing all my lectures for the autumn semester, I had a chance to visit University of California at Santa Barbara for some peaceful working days, sun, and a little bit of tourism.
Ani Saghatelyan, is a PhD student at Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Biotechnology, Faculty of Biology at Yerevan State University, Armenia.
Pargev Hovhannisyan, a research student from Yerevan State University (Armenia) worked on thermostable alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase enzymes from the amylase producer strain Anoxybacills sp. K1.
Ani Azaryan, a master student from Yerevan State University, worked for three months on her master thesis on study of halophilic archaeal strains from Avan salt deposit in Armenia.
Rubén Javier - López has completed his Master’s degree in Microbiology with a study on the novel thermophilic bacterium from hot springs in Tajikistan. Congratulations!
Adam Boulaich, student from Barcelona University worked for four months on his bachelor thesis on the recombinant production, purification and biochemical characterization of two transferase enzymes: dihydroxyacetone synthase (DHAS) from Mycobacterium sp. strain JC1 and sugar aminotransferase (SAT) allegedly related to the thermophilic genus Thermoanaerobacter.
In 2014, I moved from Iran to Norway to start a master program in applied mathematics in University of Oslo. I did not know a single Norwegian word and was not familiar with the culture. On my first day, I took a bus from Sarpsborg to Oslo which took about one and half hours. On the bus, people barely talked, and if they talked I did not understand Norwegian. At that time, I was thinking about... Read more

Prof. Nils-Kåre Birkeland and students Chandini Murarilal Ratnadevi (PhD) and Eliya Cholakova (MSc) from the “Extremophiles and biotechnology” group at the University of Bergen are heading towards Tashkent to meet fellow extremophiles from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Armenia, Georgia, China and Germany.
Project MIXsTRUCT will investigate the impact of mixotrophs on the structure of the marine pelagic food web
HOPE post-doctoral fellow Suzette Flantua is one of five main authors of a recent paper published in Nature Geoscience
Issues concerning “animal welfare” and “animal care” constitute a significant portion of both public debate and biological studies. Whereas the first concept is dealing with the well-being of animals, “animal care” comprises the activities conducted that can affects the animal welfare, while an animal is used in research, testing, and production. In our project “dCod 1.0: decoding systems... Read more
