Foredraget vil bli holdt på engelsk.

Mitochondria, "the powerhouses of the cell", are present in nearly all eukaryotic cells and are essential for cell function.

In this talk, PhD candidate Miguel A. Meca from the Natural History Museum of Bergen, will discuss the mitochondrial genome's important role in evolutionary biology, with emphasis on its application in systematics (classifying living organism). 

The event will last about 45 minutes. Coffee/tea and biscuits will be served (please bring your own cup!). Everyone is welcome!
