Researchers from the University Museum of Bergen have gathered and published information about the bubble shell in Species Online.
Biodiversity hot spots in the ocean are an untapped resource for safer, cheaper and greener products. The research project InMare has received EU funding to explore this resource.
Researchers at the University of Bergen have discovered a gene variant that increases the risk of chronic pancreatitis
Thursday 5 March Torsdag 5. mars we invited more than 60 pupils from upper secondary school in to our laboratories.
UiB researchers have developed a “GPS system” to find protein-positions in cells. The method was used to reveal a special localization the newest member of an enzyme family with important tasks in the human body. This new enzyme knowledge may be useful in medicine and the cellular "GPS system" could become a useful tool in both basic biological and biotechnological research.
