International student: Bioscience is world-class in marine bioacoustics

2018.05.03Every year hundreds of international students travel to Aarhus University to study. One of them is Ellen Rose Jacobs from California, USA. She is studying her Master’s degree in Biology at the Department of Bioscience because she wanted to work with and learn from researchers who are at the forefront of their fields.

ST to consolidate Aarhus activities on campus and at Katrinebjerg

2018.05.03The framework for Aarhus University's physical development in the years ahead was presented at a mass meeting on 2 May 2018. For ST, this means that, after a long wait, the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics will be consolidated in University City; it means moving from Kalø and Silkeborg and gathering life-science activities in the University Park; and it means that engineers will all be together at Katrinebjerg and in the Science Park.

‘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 .

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.

Når mørket fortæller hele historien

2017.04.07Indenfor biologien er et nyt koncept ved at gøre sit indtog: ”Dark Diversity” eller ’mørk mangfoldighed’. Konceptet hjælper forskerne med at få øje på de arter, der ’er blevet væk’ og med et nyt resultat fra Danmark lover det godt for fremtidens muligheder for at få hele billedet af naturens ve og vel.

Why do guillemot chicks leap from the nest before they can fly?

2017.03.28It looks like a spooky suicide when small, fluffy guillemot chicks leap from the cliffs and fall several hundred metres towards the sea – long before they are fully fledged. But researchers have now discovered that there is good reason behind the madness.
