AU-Forsker ny vært på Radio4

2019.11.05Biolog Rasmus Ejrnæs bliver fast vært på det ugentlige naturprogram ’Vildspor’ på den nye Radio4.

Ants fight plant diseases

2019.10.21New research from Aarhus University shows that ants inhibit at least 14 different plant diseases. The small insects secrete antibiotics from glands in the body. On their legs and body, they also host colonies of bacteria that secrete antibiotics. It is probably these substances that inhibit a number of different diseases and researchers now hope to find biological pesticides that may conquer resistant plant diseases.

Fruit flies help in the development of personalised medicine

2019.10.21It is common knowledge that there is a connection between our genes and the risk of developing certain diseases. In a study on fruit flies, researchers from Aarhus University and Aalborg University have found that gene mapping can also be used to predict response to a given treatment.

Novel method uses drones to weigh whales

2019.10.03AIAS fellow Fredrik Christiansen and collaborators have devised a way to accurately estimate the weight of free-living whales by using only aerial images taken by drones. The method is presented in the British Ecological Journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution.

InnoExplorer Grant to Bioscience and Enginering

2019.09.06Three scientists at AU have joined forces and pitched a project idea in front of a panel for the InnoExplorer program by Innovation Fund Denmark.

Integrated Assessment of Atlantic Marine Ecosystems in Space and Time

2019.09.04iAtlantic will take an interdisciplinary scientific approach to unifying stakeholder efforts to better inform sustainable management and enhance human and observational capacity throughout the Atlantic.

The origins of cable bacteria

2019.08.30An international team lead by professor Andreas Schramm from the Center for Electromicrobiology has recently published a paper in PNAS about the origins of cable bacteria.

Methane vanishing on Mars: Aarhus researchers propose new mechanism as an explanation.

2019.07.03The processes behind the release and consumption of methane on Mars have been discussed since methane was measured for the first time for approx. 15 years ago. Now, an interdisciplinary research group from Aarhus University has proposed a previously overlooked physical-chemical process that can explain methane's consumption.

How to make wild and autonomous nature

2019.05.02An international team of researchers have worked to clarify what rewilding actually is, and how best to design and implement rewilding as a practical tool to reverse the global losses of biodiversity.

Electrical cable bacteria were discovered in Aarhus Bay by researchers from Aarhus University, who have described five species of these bacteria so far: three from Aarhus Bay and two from Giber stream. The first species was naturally given the name Electrothrix aarhusiensis. This is a cross section of a cable bacterium with its characteristic ridges containing electrical wires. Photo: Chr.

Electric bacteria in the spotlight

2019.03.18Several years ago, researchers from Aarhus discovered a curious form of electric life on the seafloor. Since then it has become increasingly clear that a significant part of the bacterial world is electrified. Leading researchers from around the world will set this life form in focus at the first-ever electromicrobiology conference, held on March 21 and 22 in Aarhus, Denmark.
