Electron microscopy picture of a single cell (in green color) isolated from the subsurface seabed in Aarhus Bay. The cell is isolated on a membrane filter with pores that are 0.2 micrometer in diameter. The researchers use highly sensitive molecular biology techniques to sequence and map the genomes of microorganisms inhabiting subsurface seabed one cell at a time. Photo: Stefan Braun.

Sediment cores up to 10 m long can be collected from the seabed in Aarhus Bay by gravity coring. The mud in the deepest sections of such cores was deposited 10,000 years ago by the end of the last glaciation. Photo: Nils Risgaard-Petersen.

Tang til fødevarer, foder og et bedre havmiljø i Danmark

Giver det mening at dyrke og anvende tang i Danmark, og kan tangen bidrage til et bedre havmiljø? Det sætter forskere, virksomheder, myndigheder og interesseorganisationer fokus på i et nyt stort projekt, som er støttet af VILLUM FONDEN og VELUX FONDEN med 10 millioner kroner.
