Det danske referencegenom kan ændre vores syn på behandling

2017.07.28GenomeDenmark-konsortiet har efter fem års arbejde sat det sidste bogstav i det danske referencegenom. Ved at kortlægge 150 danskeres arvemasse helt fra bunden er det lykkedes forskerne at skabe et referencegenom, som indeholder langt flere detaljer, end hvad man kender fra andre studier i verden.

Aarhus Universitet indvier Center for Cirkulær Bioøkonomi

2017.05.23Verden står overfor en række globale ‘Grand Challenges’; ikke mindst omkring etableringen af en ny biobaseret økonomi, der kan tage over fra den fossile. Bioøkonomi har stort internationalt fokus, og er en strategisk prioritet for EU. På den basis indvier Science and Technology på Aarhus Universitet nu Center for Cirkulær Bioøkonomi d. 23. maj 2017.

Rovdyr er mest glubske i troperne

’Hovedet i havet’: når skolebørn opdager havets forunderlige verden

2017.05.01Et nyt undervisningstiltag om det danske havmiljø ser nu dagens lys. 'Hovedet i havet' er et formidlingsprojekt, der i særlig grad retter sig mod skoleelever på 7.- 9. klassetrin. Gennem en række tværfaglige undervisningsforløb får børn og unge mulighed for at møde og opleve havets natur på en ganske unik måde.

‘Whispering’ keeps humpbacks safe from killer whales, study finds

2017.05.01Newborn humpback whales ‘whisper’ to their mothers to avoid being overheard by killer whales, researchers have discovered. The recordings – the first obtained from tags directly attached to the whales – are published today in Functional Ecology .

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.
