Smart Protein – Implementing Plant Based Prototypes in foods and meals Ny
The next generation of plant-based foods is being currently developed. As part of the project, you will contribute to the creation and evaluation of new foods that can be implemented on the basis of innovative raw materials.
Salinity tolerance of the invasive Pacific oyster (Megallana gigas) Ny
The invasive Pacific oyster is present in all Danish waters – except Bornholm. The Pacific oyster is in literature known to have a salinity range of 20 - 35 ppt. However, in Denmark the oyster lives at salinities far below 20 ppt
Oxygen uptake and oxygen debt in the common whelk (Buccinum undatum) during aerial storage Ny
Whelk Fished in Denmark are exported to the Far East. The whelks are boiled before export. The time from catch to boiled are crucial for the quality. Therefore, knowledge on the whelk’s physiology when stored in air is needed.
Oxyregulation capacity (Pcrit) at different temperatures in the shrimp (Crangon crangon) Ny
Low oxygen is common in the marine environment. Knowledge on when low oxygen becomes limiting for the benthic fauna is important. Low oxygen acts in concert with temperature and this dependency is equally important to study.
The thermal window for aerobic scope in shallow water marine bivalves Ny
Low oxygen are common in the marine environment. When low oxygen becomes limiting for the benthic fauna is important. The thermal window for aerobic scope is equally important to study as it sets the limits for normal activity.
Invasive mussel in freshwater ecosystems - dispersal, current distribution and impact Ny
The Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) is well establishing outside its origin in the Black Sea and continues to spread in Europe and N. America. You can contribute to our knowledge on dispersal, density, behaviour and impact.
Invasive mussel in Danish freshwater ecosystems - occurrence and density Ny
At present, there are reports on density and biomass from a relatively small number of localities. Further dispersal is very likely to happen. You can contribute by surveying existing locations and search for new populations.
Invasive mussel in Danish freshwater ecosystems - current distribution & review of effects Ny
The zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) is well establishing in DK and is currently spreading to more sites where it has implications for the natural biota. You can contribute to our knowledge on dispersal, occurrence and impact.
Understanding how to reduce beer haze formation with enzymes in the brewing industry Ny
A collaborative M.Sc. project between IDT and the company International Flavors & Fragrances investigating how enzymes used in the brewing industry works at the molecular level to inhibit beer haze – precipitated aggregates of pro
Protonation state of enzyme active site residues from high resolution crystal structures Ny
You will learn to use structural databases, refine and analyse structures of enzymes from high resolution crystallographic data and consider the importance of protonation states in hydrolase enzymes
