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.
UiB researcher Saket Saurabh embarks on a new ERC funded project, aiming to revolutionise how we handle, utilise and compress Big Data.
Dr. Siddharth Sareen gave a presentation on the political economy of energy transitions at Bergen Energy Lab on Tuesday November 20th.
Algae do not live long, and the nutrient content of the water can change quickly. If you want to predict the primary production in the Barents Sea one or ten years ahead, it is more important to know the current conditions of temperature ocean currents, than the nutrient content in the ocean here and now.
- When talking about renewable marine energy, understanding and monitoring the harsh environmental conditions is a necessity, says Emilie Dorgeville from Aanderaa Data Instruments.
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
Our PhD student Chandini Murarilal Ratnadevi was awarded the First Prize for her poster presentation at the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) course in Molecular Geobiology held at European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Heidelberg,Germany, August 2018.
The project is a series of visual artworks, based on a selection of essential key questions defining the complex and messy process of energy transition.
With all the rain pouring down this autumn, some may already look forward to an equally snow-rich winter as last year's in Western Norway. While the seasonal forecasts have not yet reached a consensus, at least by now some Bjerknes scientists know more about last year's snow.
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.
From journeys into mines to explorations of volcanoes on the ocean floor, deep voyages reveal the richness of the planet’s deep biosphere.
The 47th Under Water Mining conference (UMC18) was hosted in Bergen, Grieghallen, from 11th to 14th of September. The conference was organized in collaboration with the K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research (UiB), Global Centres of Expertise Subsea (GCE Subsea) and the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD). We are pleased to announce that the conference was of great success.
